A loan of $2,475 helped a member to buy wool wholesale.

Plan 3000 Group's story

The Plan 3000 communal bank will begin its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Senkata regional center. It is comprised of eight members and led by a board of directors. Miriam is the president. The businesses that the members of the communal bank engage in are varied and include selling food, selling soft drinks, selling meat, construction service, selling blankets, transportation service, seamstress shop, and selling insoles.

The loan that they will take out will benefit small business people where Miriam is a member. She says that she joined by invitation from a representative of the institution who went to her area and formed a group.

She currently has a business selling blankets. She says that she learned this business from her mother and her sister several years ago. They sold this product, and it was very salable at the market.

The loan that she will now take out is to increase capital (to buy wool wholesale). She will get the wool at the markets in the city of El Alto. After making the blankets she will sell them at her sales space. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her family. She is in a common-law marriage and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the health services and the training that the institution offers.

In this group: Miriam, Ruben , Cecilia, Madelyn Jhovana, Flavia , Lucia, Sonia Katty, Adela
