The “ALPACOMA” community association will begin its ninth cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the central office in the Andes. It’s made up of eight members and is directed by a board of directors, where Katina is the President. The other members of the association run various other businesses. We have making pants, furniture sales, grocery sales, food sales, porcelain making, fish sales, smoothie sales, clothing sales, tomato sales, and vest making.

Noelia says that she has been with Pro Mujer for two cycles, having joined after being invited by her sister. She currently has a furniture selling business. She developed this business years ago, having learned it from her mother.

This loan will increase her working capital (buy lumber). She will buy from the suppliers in the city of El Alto and then sell it at her point of sale. This type of work will allow her to generate income to support her family. She is married and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the health training.

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.
