The El Paraiso Community Bank will begin its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Panamericana regional office. There are eight members in the group led by a Board of Directors headed by Sra. Teodora. The members have a variety of businesses such as selling fast food, running a hardware store, weaving blankets, spinning yarn from vicuna wool, selling coca leaves, and selling chili peppers.

Sra. Agustina began working with Pro Mujer a year ago. She joined the institution at the invitation of another member. Currently she runs a business selling chili peppers as well as other businesses she has had for several years.

The loan she is seeking is for working capital so that she can buy more chilis from la Ceja which she will then sell in various markets. The income from her business enables her to support her family; she lives with her partner and their two children. Agustina tells us that she most enjoys the service provided by and the meetings organised by Pro Mujer.

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.
