A loan of $6,100 helped a member to buy cosmetics wholesale.


Yambal Group's story

The YAMBAL Community Association will start the 29th cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de Santiago II. The association is made up of eleven members and led by a board, of which Liliana is the President. The businesses run by members of the association are varied and include selling cosmetics, selling shoes, a hardware store, weaving for overalls, a grocery store, a corner store, and selling gas.

The loan they obtain will benefit micro-entrepreneurs, including Liliana. She says that she has been a member of Pro Mujer for 17 years, after joining when she was invited by a friend who is a member of the association. Today she has a beauty salon: she says that she learned about this activity by studying in a technical institute, and over time and with a small amount of capital, she decided to start her own business. The loan that she will now now obtain is to be used to increase her stock (buying cosmetics wholesale), which she will acquire from wholesale distributors in the city of El Alto and subsequently sell in her retail store. This form of work allows her to generate income to support her family financially, as she lives with her partner and her three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says she likes the area of ​​health, training and microcredits offered by the institution.
