The unincorporated association “Sorateñas” will begin their fifth loan cycle with Pro Mujer. Making up the focal point of Los Andes, the group is comprised of eight members and is governed by a board of directors, led by Karina. The members of the communal association engage in a variety of business activities, including selling fruit, underwear, mutton, jackets, baby clothing and woollen jumpers.

Karina tells us that this is the second year that she has worked with Pro Mujer, after having been invited to join the group by one of her relatives. She is currently running a business selling fruit, which she has been doing for some time.

The loan that Karina has applied for will be used to add to her capital (purchasing fruit) which she will get from La Paz and later sell as a street vendor, as she has no fixed area where she can sell her products. This line of work allows her to generate an income to make a life for herself, as she is single.

When asked what she liked about Pro Mujer, Karina responded that she liked the area of health.

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.
