The “LAS NARANJITAS” community association is starting its first cycle in “Pro Mujer,” as part of the Santiago II Central Office. The group is made up of eight members and governed by a board of directors. Kathia is the group’s president. The businesses that the members run include art sales, alpaca yarn weaving, quilt sales, chocolates, wedding gifts, shoe making, packaging tape sales, and cosmetic sales.

This loan will help small businesses like Kathia’s; she is beginning her second cycle as a “Pro Mujer” member. She joined after being invited by a promoter who visited her home. She has a chocolate making business, having learned the art from her mother.

This loan will increase her working capital and she will buy chocolates in quantity from stores, and resell them from her point of sale. This job allows her to generate income to support her family; she is married and has three children.

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

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.
