The "Florida" group is starting its first loan cycle with the organization Pro Mujer. They are working with one of the organization's regional offices in Villa Adela. The group is made up of eight members and is directed by a governing board where Justina is the President. The members have developed various businesses which include: the making of macrame blankets, a neighborhood store, and the sale of various items including sweets, clothing, stuffed animal toys, food, shoes and coffee.

This loan will benefit the small businesses where Justina is a member. She has been a member of Pro Mujer for a year and a half since she was invited by her godmother, who is one of the members of the institution. Right now Justina has a business which sells food. She says that she learned about this business since she was a girl, when she helped her mother to start it.

The loan she is receiving will be used to increase her capital (to buy corn), which she will buy from wholesale vendors and later sell at the markets in the city of El Alto. This form of work permits Justina to generate income to support her family. She is single and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Justina said she likes the health services.

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.
