Kolla Marca Group
In this Group: Florencia, Primitiva, Irma, Jocefa, Juana, Roxana, Jhaive Patricia, Rene Edgar, Maruja
The “Kolla Marca” Communal Association meets every two weeks at the Alto Lima Community Center. They joined together in order to access the capital needed to improve their businesses. The members of this Association have different businesses in the manufacturing, service, and retail sectors.

One clear example is Florencia P., who is 43 years old. She recalls joining the Pro Mujer family six years ago after being invited by a friend. Florencia manufactures balls and plans to use her loan to buy imitation leather, bladders (the core of a soccer ball that holds the air, usually made of latex or synthetic rubber), and hemp in bulk so that she can continue producing her products.

Florencia enjoys going to the Pro Mujer sponsored clinic because she receives health advise for herself and her family.

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.
