A loan of $2,850 helped a member to buy flour in bulk.

Nueva Visión Group's story

The loan group New Vision will start its fourth loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de Santago II. The group is comprised of 8 members and is directed by a board of which Rossemery is the president. The members run a variety of businesses including: selling baby clothes, dressmaking, making ready to wear clothes, selling dairy products, selling cheese, selling shawls, making jackets.
The loan they are requesting will benefit small enterprises such as Rossemery's. She says that this is her first time as a member of Pro Mujer and she joined after being invited by someone from the institution who went to visit her at home. Currently, she has a business selling tucamanas (traditional Bolivian empanadas). She tells us that she started her business 2 years ago - as she already knew how to make tucamanas she decided to start her own business.
The loan that she is requesting will be used to increase her capital to buy flour in bulk, and she will buy it from the markets in the city of El Alto and later make and sell her products in the markets. This form of work enables her to generate resources to support her family as she is a widow and has 4 children.
When we asked her what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the attention that she gets from the institution staff.

In this group: Rossemary, Sonia, Rosmery , Candelaria , Claudia, Lourdes, Juan Alvaro, Emilia
