The Panamericana focal center is characterized by gathering in members who live in the city of El Alto’s newest areas; usually first-generation immigrants.

Such is the case of the “Flor de Azucena “ (Easter Lilly) association. It is composed of 12 members who are starting their 16th loan cycle, which means that they are about to complete their 8th year collaborating with the Pro Mujer family.

The members are involved in a variety of commercial activities; such as: sales of clothing, cooking oil, balls. Some make sweaters, others sell plastic items. Some manufacture aguayos (a special woven item used by women to carry their babies on their backs) while others sell condiments. There are blanket weavers, food sellers and grocers.

Casilda M., 28, is married and has 5 children. She has sold clothing for a year now. She buys merchandise in Desaguadero, because it’s less expensive there, and sells her products in El Alto’s La Ceja market. She also travels to other towns, like Caranavi. She hopes to be associated with the Pro Mujer family for a long time.

She will use this loan to buy clothing.

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.
