Viviana is the treasurer of the Banco Mujer Mujeres Triunfadoras. She is 26 years old, married and is the mother of 2 children, one 9 year old daughter, and a 2 year old son.

She raises chickens. Her previous loan was invested in the purchase of these animals and concentrated feed and vitamins needed for the growth and fattening. Thanks to the loan she increased her production.

For this second loan she is going to explore raising pigs, and she plans to invest in the purchase of these animals and their feed, and thus to supplement the two activities, always looking to generate income to help pay the household expenses.

The credit has been a great help because Viviana could begin improvements to her housing as she had proposed, and was able to give a better quality of life to her children.

The remaining members of this bank will invest in agricultural activities.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

In Costa Rica, funding for microfinance institutions is hard to come by, and many institutions find themselves having difficulty growing and reaching all the demand for loans that exist. Kiva works with Fundacion Mujer because it attends a very marginalized population in Costa Rica, with a specific focus on women. In addition to the loan, Fundacion Mujer provides specialized training programs for their borrowers on everything from computer classes to salon training. Because of the difficulty in obtaining capital in Costa Rica, Fundacion Mujer cannot serve all the women that need loans. Therefore Kiva plays a unique role in helping Fundacion Mujer grow its portfolio and reach borrowers it otherwise would not be able to.

About Fundacion Mujer:

Fundación Mujer is an organization specializing in the financial and personal development of female entrepreneurs in Costa Rica. They seek to reach underserved populations that may include indigenous communities, immigrants, refugees, victims of domestic violence or women living with HIV/AIDS. Fundación Mujer offers courses in both business and personal development, as well as training in concrete skills such as sewing and other crafts.

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.
