The “PROSPERIDAD” community bank is in its third cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Cascada center. It is made up of eight members, and is directed by a board of directors where Basilina serves as president. The members have various businesses, including macramé, sheep and lamb selling, and plastic item sales.

This loan will benefit small businesses of different trades, including Ana Maria’s. She says that she has been with Pro Mujer for ten cycles, having joined on the invitation of a friend who is also a member. She has a caporal dress (native Bolivian dance) embroidery business and learned this by working as an assistant. Later they trusted her with the supplies and allowed her to work from home so she wants to set up her own work space.

She will use the money from this loan to buy pearls and fabric in bulk and make and sell from her work area. This type of work allows her to generate income to support her household; she is married and has seven 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.
