A loan of $3,000 helped a member buy jewelry making supplies and solder.

Renacer Group's story

The community bank "Renacer" will begin its first term with Pro Mujer as part of the Collpani regional office. It is comprised of eight members and is run by a board of directors with Leslie as the president. The group members run a variety of businesses; they make baby clothes, create jewelry, sell cleaning supplies, provide construction services, sell typical snacks, sell detergents, make sports cloths, and make and sell food.

This loan will benefit all of the small businesses in Leslie's group. She said this her first time with Pro Mujer, and she entered at the request of a consultant who came to visit her at her house. She currently runs a jewelry store. She learned the business from a friend of hers who used to help her out. She is relying on the loan that she will receive to start up an independent business.

The loan that she is taking out at this time to increase her capital through the purchase of hoops (for earrings) and solder, which she will buy from vendors in the city of El Alto. Then after she makes the jewelry she will sell it on order to her customers. This work has helped her generated income to support her family. She lives with her partner and their son.

When asked what she likes best about Pro Mujer, she said she likes the training and the health clinic that the institution provides.

In this group: Leslie Dyana, Santos Julian, Maria Renee, Vanesa, Adela , Manuela Santusa , Maria Teresa, Carmen Rosa
