The “MUJERES OBRERAS” community association will begin its seventh cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Los Andes Center. This group is made up of eight members and directed by a board of directors where Maruja serves as president.

The members have various types of businesses, including: sales of slab bread, cell phone accessory sales, knitting sweaters, blanket sales, fruit sales, and cleaning services.

They will use the money from this loan to help their small companies. Maruja tells us that she started with Pro Mujer two years ago, after some of her friends invited her to join. She sells antennas and started this business little by little with little capital. Now she wants to expand for the end of the year season.

She will use the money to increase her capital (buy antennas) that she will acquire at fairs in the city of El Alto. She will resell them from her stall. This type of work allows her to generate income to help support her household; she lives with her husband and three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the 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.
