Lucero De Querarani Group's story

The “LUCERO DE QURARANI” communal bank is starting their 1st cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Copacabana regional office. It is made up of nine members with Luisa as President. The businesses of the the members of the communal bank are based on the production of milk.

The loan will benefit all these micro-entrepreneurs of whom Luisa is one. She says that the first time she joined Pro Mujer it was at the invitation of a promoter of the institution who visited her in her in house.

She currently has a business producing milk. She told us that this was a family business. She helped her parents in their dairy from a young age. When she got married she decided to do this independently.

The loan she will get will be used to increase her working capital (buying cattle) which she will purchase from sellers in the city of El Alto and later raise it on her farm to sell the milk. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family as she is married and has 3 children. When asked what she liked about Pro Mujer she replied that she liked the life insurance that they offer.
