Among them are carpentry, making ‘picos’ and ‘chuntillos’ [rustic tools], selling sweets, selling food, weaving blankets, making foam decorations, and a neighborhood store.

The loan they will take out will benefit the small businesswomen in the group, of which Alicia is a member. She says that she has been a member of Pro Mujer for two cycles. She joined by invitation from a friend who is a member of the institution.

She currently has a business of selling sweets. She learned this from a friend who she helped with sales. Alicia later undertook her own business. The loan that she will now take out is to expand and improve the business (to buy sweets and flour). She will make her purchases at the fairs in the city of El Alto. She will later prepare and sell the sweets at her sales location. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her family as much as she can. She is in a common-law marriage, and she has three children.

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.
