The community bank "Suma Chuyma" will begin it's 9th loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal Germán Busch. It is composed of 9 members and is directed by a board of which Martha is the President. The businesses that the members of the community group run are varied, and among them we have: tailoring, selling furniture, carpentry, selling food, embroidering blankets, selling fruit, selling shoes.
The loan that they are requesting will benefit small businesspeople such as Martha. She points out that it is three years since she joined Pro Mujer, having joined at the invitation of a member who participated in the community bank. She currently has a business selling furniture. She tells us that she started this business years ago jointly with her husband's brother who taught her the work and she went out to sell the products that had just been made.
The loan that she is requesting now is to increase her business capital so she can acquire furniture from people who no longer want it, repair it, and then sell it in the markets in the city of El Alto. This work enables her to generate income to support her family economically as she is married and has four children.
When she was asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes sharing the training and health information with her friends.
One of the members, Vicky, is not in the photo due to cultural reasons.

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.
