The Kollitas Community Association will start its first loan cycle with Kiva partner Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Panamericana. It is comprised of seven members and is run by a board of directors headed by Lidia. The businesses that the members of the community association run are varied. Among them we have sales, production, farming, and services.

Lidia states that this is her first time working with Pro Mujer, and she joined at the invitation of a promoter. She has a business selling baby clothes, which she has been running for five years, and which she started with the help of her sister-in-law.

The loan she will take is to invest in merchandise (buying baby clothes). She will purchase these items on Tumusla street and will sell them at the 16 de Julio Market (a commercial zone in the city of El Alto). This work allows her to generate revenue to support her family. She is married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she said that she likes the training and consulting.

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.
