A loan of $4,450 helped a member to buy meat wholesale.

Primero De Mayo Group's story

The loan group First of May will start its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de Santago II. The group is comprised of 9 members and is directed by a board of which Nadir is the president. The members run a variety of businesses including: making shawls, selling sweaters, crafts, transportation services, a neighborhood grocery store, and selling clothes.
The loan they are requesting will benefit small enterprises such as Nadir's. She says that she has been member of Pro Mujer for 2 years and she joined after being invited by someone from the institution who went to visit her at home. Currently, she has a business selling meat. She tells us that she started her business some years ago. It was a family business and, after her marriage, she decided to have her own business.
The loan that she is requesting will be used to increase her capital to buy meat wholesale, and she will buy it from the wholesale vendors in the city of El Alto and later sell it from her sales location. This form of work enables her to generate resources to support her family as she is married and has 2 children.
When we asked her what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the health services that she gets from the institution.

In this group: Nadir, Justina, Elvira Ines, Emiliana, Eva Laura, Juana, Nicolasa Luisa, Edgard, Lidia Porfiria
