Many are the business activities that the members of the Progreso Group, a branch of the Panamericana headquarters, partake in. All of the members work with the hopes of giving their families a better quality of life. One of the members is Susana M., a married mother of three who helps to support the household by weaving blankets, a skill that she learned in school. She would like to purchase vicuna wool so that she can weave blankets out of this material because her customers prefer it. Susana has a stand at the 16 de Julio Market, but she also sells her products at Ceja Avenida Tihuanaku.

The rest of the group members sell footwear, fries, dried foods, vegetables, or other goods.

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.
