The Flor Kantuta Community Association will start its first loan cycle with Kiva partner Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Panamericana. It is comprised of eight members and is run by a board of directors headed up by Lucha. The businesses that the members of the community association run are varied. Among them we have: crocheting blankets, selling fish, dairy production, making cardigans, a general store, arts and crafts, food sales, and upholstery.

Lucha states that this is her first time working with Pro Mujer and that she started by invitation from a promoter. She has a business of making cardigans. She has been in this business for three years, which she started on her own.

The loan she will take is to purchase fabric. She will purchase this material from Ceja wholesale after it is made. This work allows her to generate revenue to support her family. She is married and has six children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the training, health, and savings.

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.
