Mina Chojlla Group
The members have different businesses. Among them we have: neighborhood grocery store, chili and vegetable sales, shoe store, clothing sales, furniture sales, food sales, fruit sales and blanket weaving.
The President, Juana, is a 49 year old woman. She’s married and has five children. This is her fifth year of working with communal banks running a business with her daughter.
She sells juices and food in the Mina Chojlla area. She relates that she usually buys her ingredients at the 16 de Julio market (El Alto’s commercial zone). She will use the loan to buy rice, noodles and potatoes at wholesale (because it’s less expensive).
When we asked her what she liked best about Pro Mujer she answered that she likes being with her friends, to relax and to pay.

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.
