A loan of $4,425 helped a member to purchase an industrial toaster.

29 De Junio Group's story

The C.A. “29 DE JUNIO” (June 29th) will begin the third cycle of Pro Mujer (Pro Woman) as part of Senkata's Focal Center. It is composed of eight members and it is directed by a board where Mrs. Sonia is the president. The businesses that the members of the community association carry forward are varied, among them exist: selling meat, selling various products, selling vegetables, selling milk, neighborhood store.

The loan that they want to take out will benefit small micro-entrepreneurs where Mrs. Sonia is a member (she indicates that it is the second year she is a member of Pro Mujer, joining at the invitation of a colleague who is a client of the institution). At present, she has a business selling chips. She discloses that she implemented this business several years ago, alongside her partner; presently they both work this business.

The loan that she is now taking out is to increment her capital (to purchase an industrial toaster), which she will acquire from the provinces’ fairs of the La Paz department; subsequently to the product's elaboration she will commercialize it in her retail space. This way of work allows her to generate resources to support her family, given that she lives in a consensual union and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health area, the skills training, and the credit area offered by the institution.
