In the Alto Lima Community Center you will find the “Flor De Eucalipto” (Eucalyptus Flower) Association. This group is composed of twelve women, who work responsibly as they pursue their own activities.


The members are involved in different businesses like clothing sales, production of straw mattresses, soft drink sales, production and sales of cakes with api (corn porridge), handmade fabrics of alpaca wool, and other retail shops. Many of them sell their products at the “16 de Julio” (July 16th) market located in the city of El Alto.


They all wish to increase their production and sales. For this reason, they need to buy additional merchandise and raw materials (such as straw, alpaca fiber, winter clothing, flour, etc.).

Additional Information

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
