Ana Q. is treasuer of focal center Villa Adela's "Capullo de Rosa" (Rosebud) communal bank. She is 42 years old, married and has 6 children. She has had 7 loan cycles as a member of the association.

She sells sheets and stockings at wholesale. When asked how she began her business, she smiled and stated that it was due to "need." Several years ago, when she and her husband moved to Santa Cruz, they didn't have money enough left to eat; they had to learn how to sell. Now, she and her husband continue to work together. They sell in La Ceja in El Alto and on Tumusla street in La Paz.

It has 13 members, who are involved in a variety of commercial activities: neighborhood store, cosmetics sales, sale of a loom, sash making, clothing sales, detergents, underwear and sheets, potato and dehydrated potato, novelty seasonal items (for example, if it's Christmas, it's toy sales), room and board, Tucumanas (minced meat or chicken turnovers).

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.
