Meet Janeth, a Micro-Entrepreneur from Bolivia

May 6, 2011 at 2:41 pm 1 comment

In impoverished communities throughout Latin America, women often have limited or no access to vital services such as finance, training and health care, yet they aspire to a better life for themselves and their families.

Meet Janeth, a 38-year old mother of three children and a micro-entrepreneur from Santa Cruz, Bolivia.

Before joining Pro Mujer, Janeth had no income of her own and was dependent on others. An initial loan of US$150 gave her the opportunity to start a small but successful business, invest in her own personal development and help provide for her family.

Watch her tell her story and feel free to make your tax-deductible gift safely and securely through our Donate Now page so that women like Janeth not only become small business owners, but owners of their own destinies.
