Punku - Paxi Group's story

Punku paxi means The Moon's Door in the Aymará language and is the name that this association, that has worked with the Pro-Mujer family for 9 years, has adopted. The association has various businesses. Abraham, for example, is a auto body worker. Others sell baby clothing and other consumer items, but the majority are craftspeople; they make blankets with beautiful traditional designs woven in looms that are sold in souvenir shops as well as by request.

They need work capital to purchase raw materials. By generating higher incomes they will improve their quality of life as well as that of their children.
