Corazones Valientes Group’s story

The communal loan group “Corazones Valientes” will begin its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal Senkata. It is made up of eight members and is led by officers, of whom Lidia is the president.

The loan that they will get will benefit the small micro-entrepreneurs of whom Lidia is one. Currently, she has a business selling shawls, she states that she learned this business from her mother some years ago.

The loan that she will get will be to increase her capital by purchasing wool in bulk, which she will get from the wholesalers in the city of La Paz. After production she will sell them in her sales space. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family economically since she is a widow and has one son.

In this group: Lidia, Francisca , Rosalia , Maria, Natividad , Victor , Rosaura , Magda
