A loan of $2,950 helped a member to buy barley at wholesale.

Rosas De Mazo Cruz Group's story

The "Rosas de Mazo Cruz" communal bank will begin its third cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Senkata regional office. It is made up of eight members and led by an executive board of which Señora Roxana is the president. The members of the communal bank run a variety of businesses including a dairy, a neighborhood store, and livestock production.

The loan that they will take out will benefit small microbusinesses like Roxana's. She states that she joined Pro Mujer two years ago at the invitation of a friend who is a member of the institution. Currently, her business is the sale of dairy products. She explains that she learned this business previously because it was a family business; after having her first son, she decided to launch an independent business.

The loan that she will take out now is to increase her capital for the purchase of barley at wholesale. She will acquire it from the neighboring communities and later feed it to her cattle. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her family, as she is single and has one son.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the institution's health-related offerings.

In this group: Roxana , Justina, Paola Alexandra, Ana Gloria, Rosmery, Marizol , Carolina, Fidelia Jhanet
