A loan of $3,425 helped a member to buy mobile phones wholesale.

Siervas De Collpani Group's story

Communal bank 'Siervas de Collpani' is starting its first lending cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the focus centre of Collpani. It is comprised of nine members and headed by Maria as president. Members carry out various types of activities: mobile phone sales, clothing sales, clothes shop, carpentry, food sales, cloth weaving, fast food shop, bell pepper sales, condiments sales. This loan will thus benefit small entrepreneurs. Maria says this is her first time working with Pro Mujer, and that she heard of this institution thanks to a massive campaign it organised. She operates a small mobile phone business and has been doing so for several years. She learned the trade from her husband, who also sold phones. She needs to increase her working capital to buy mobile phones wholesale from sellers in the city of El Alto. She will then sell them at her shop. This business generates income for her to support her family, since she is single and has a child. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she mentions training received in the area of health.

In this group: Maria Ysabel, Pascuala , Helen , Silvia Ximena, Irene , Crispin , Brigida , Beatriz Martha, Melania
