“LAS DALIAS” community bank is about to start its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Villa Exaltación regional office. This group has nine members and is managed by a board of directors. The group's secretary is Susana. The businesses that the women are engaged in are varied and include: selling rugs and comforters, selling CDs, selling fruit, running a small restaurant, knitting bedspreads, aprons and sweaters, and selling meals.

Susana tells us that this is her second loan cycle with Pro Mujer. She joined through an invitation from the organization's advisers and some friends from her area. Susana's business is machine knitting sweaters at home. She tells us that she learned this business in her aunt's home and has been carrying it out for one year.

Susana's current loan will be used to buy yarn (raw material for her products). She buys her yarn in Max Paredez Street (a commercial area in the city of La Paz). After making her products, she sells them as an itinerant street vendor because she doesn't have a fixed sales location. She sells mainly in La Ceja (a commercial area of the city of El Alto) or near schools. This work allows her to make money to support her family. She lives with her partner and has one child.

When we asked her what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replied that she likes the training.

In the photo, there is an additional person accompanying the group. This is María's sister but when the photo was taken she preferred to turn her head.

La señora Susana, indica que hace dos ciclos que trabaja con Pro Mujer, ingresando por invitación de los asesores y compañeras de su zona. En la actualidad ella tiene un negocio de tejido de chompas a máquina, el que lo realiza en su C.. Nos cuenta también, que ella aprendió este negocio en la C. de su tía y lo viene realizando hace un año atrás.

El crédito que ahora sacará es para forma un capital de lana (materia prima para sus productos), este material lo comprará de la calle Max Paredez (lugar comercial de la ciudad de La paz). Posterior a la elaboración de sus productos los comercializará de forma ambulante, ya que ella no cuenta con un puesto fijo.; los lugares son indistintos, pero en su mayoría en la Ceja (zona comercial de la ciudad de El Alto) o cerca de los colegios. Esta forma de trabajo le permite generar recursos para apoyar en lo posible a su familia, pues ella vive en concubinato y tiene un hijo.

Cuando se le consulta qué le gusta de Pro Mujer, ella responde que le gusta la capacitación.

En la foto, hay una persona que acompaña al grupo, es la hermana de la señora María, pero cuando se les saco la foto prefiere darse la vuelta.

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.
