Las Soñadoras Group’s story

“Las Soñadoras” community bank will start their first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Copacabana focal group. The bank has 10 members. It is directed by a board of directors where Fabiola is the president

The loan will benefit microentrepreneurs like Fabiola. Currently, she has a business selling vegetables. She learned about this business from her mother in law several years ago.

The loan will be used to increase capital for purchasing wholesale vegetables. These will be purchased from vendors in the city of La Paz. She will then sell them at a vending location. This form of work allows her to generate income to economically support her family since she is a widow with two children.

In this group: Fabiola Teresa , Bruno Sergio , Carmen , Paola Claudia , Pamela Margot , Paola Daniela, Julia, Zulma Vianay, Irma , Lesly Khaterin
