The “UNIÓN ESTRELLAS DE SENKATA” group is in its first cycle in the Centro Focal de Senkata and is comprised of six members. Evelia is the president. The activities of the group members are varied. Between them they sell food, run a neighborhood shop, sell clothes, and sell potatoes.

Evelia tells us that this is her first time that she found a community bank like Pro Mujer and she was invited by her neighbors to join. She has a food-selling business and has worked for many years learning this work, which was also the trade of her mother.

This loan will help her to increase her merchandise (she will buy vegetables and cereals) that she will buy in the markets of the city of El Alto and then will sell in her own market stall. This work helps her support her family, as she is married and has three children.

When we asked why she liked Pro Mujer, she told us that she likes the health training.

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.
