Nevaditas De Corapata Group's story

The communal association "Nevaditas de Corapata" is starting the second cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de Copacabana. It consists of eight partners and is run by a board of directors of which Juana is the president. The businesses engaged in by the partners of the communal association are various, among them are: food sales, handicraft production, the weaving of sweaters, the sale of prepared foods, the sale of vegetables, a neighborhood shop, the sale of livestock, and the sale of kebabs. The loan they will get will benefit the small microbusinesses in which Juana is a partner. She says that she joined Pro Mujer a year ago. She joined at the invitation of a promoter from the institution who went to visit her in her house. These days she has a business weaving blankets which she states is a family business. She used to help her parents weave when she was a child. When she married, she decided to start her own independent business. The loan she will take out will be used to increase her capital (to buy wool wholesale) which she will acquire from the saleswomen in the city of El Alto and which she will market in her sales location after manufacture. This kind of work allows her to generate the resources to support her family since she is married and has three children. When you ask her what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the loans offered by the institution.

In this group: Juana Elena, Monica, Alicia, Maxima, Gladiz , Elena Sofia, Ines, Pablo
