The communal bank "Azucenas" will start its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer, working out of the central office of Villa Adela. This group has 8 members, and is led by a board of directors headed by Raquel. The members of this group have a variety of businesses including: heavy equipment driver, handicraft production, the sale of pastries, and the sale of gifts.

Raquel explains that this is her first loan cycle working with Pro Mujer; she joined at the invitation of a loan officer. She currently has a business selling pastries that she started up 3 years ago. She tells us that she started this business because it was one of her dreams to have a business making cookies.

This loan that she is taking will be used to buy an ice cream machine that she will use in her business making pastries. She will buy this machine from the wholesale vendors in La Ceja (a commercial neighborhood of the city of El Alto.) After making her products, she sells them in the Alianza neighborhood Monday through Friday from 10am until 7pm. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family as much as possible, since she is married and has 3 children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answered that she likes the easy payment terms on the loans.

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.
