Lara Storm-Swire highlights the challenges faced by Pro Mujer’s Youth Solidarity Group program in Bolivia, which offers credit to young people by inserting groups of 4-6 youth into existing Pro Mujer adult communal banks. Results from the pilot test and roll-out shed light on the many differences between youth and their adult counterparts, leading Pro Mujer to reassess whether combining the two segments is the most effective way of addressing their needs.
