The “Esparanza De Collpani” [“Hope of Collpani] group will begin its twenty-fourth loan cycle with Pro Mujer. It is part of the Collpani regional office and is made up of eleven members, who are managed by a board that is headed by Santusa. The members of the group are involved in various types of businesses, including running a store, serving as a minibus conductor, running a bookstore with telephone services, and selling items such as food, spare parts, handicrafts, groceries, syrup, and clothing.

Santusa says that she has worked with Pro Mujer for five years, and that she joined the organization after a friend invited her. Her business is selling food, which she has done for years, since she learned the business from her mother who also sold food.

Santusa will use the loan to increase her working capital so she can purchase supplies. She plans to purchase the items she needs at a street market in La Paz and then prepare and sell the food at her shop. This business helps her to support her family, since she is a single mother and has four children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Santusa answered that she likes the training and the organization’s friendly relationship with its members.

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.
