Pro Mujer celebrates its 20th Anniversary this year as an organization that supports women. The main office in the Andes is one of the oldest in the El Alto Region, with the Chulumani being one of the longest standing communal associations, having had 25 loan cycles with Pro Mujer (approximately twelve and a half years). The businesses that the members conduct are: the sale of footwear, baby clothes, woven sweaters and blankets, canned goods, juices and refreshments, macrame items, cheese and salt, and a grocery store. Mrs. Agustina Elena R. is 42 years old and married with three children (2 girls and 1 boy). She has a blanket weaving business during her free time and has been traveling to the cities of Cochabamba and Santa Cruz these past two years, taking school supplies along with her. This business began under the advice of her sister, whom already had experience in the development of this type of economic activity. Nevertheless, these haven't been the only economic activities that Agustina has undertaken. During the 24 loan cycles that she has been a member of Pro Mujer, she has developed different businesses according to the opportunities that have been presented to her.

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.
