The Olivo communal bank will start its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Achacachi regional office. The bank has eight members and is run by a board of directors. Margarita is the president. The businesses that the ladies are engaged in are varied and include: selling vegetables, buying and selling livestock, selling potatoes, selling cheese, and being a driver.

The loan they will take will help small businesswomen, where Margarita is a member, with different business activities. She says that this is her first time with Pro Mujer, and she joined by invitation from a representative of the institution, who went to Margarita’s house to visit with her.

Margarita currently has a business selling cheese. She set up this business with some savings that she had through the years. She has been working with this product ever since she started.

The loan she will now take is to increase capital (to buy a cow), which she will get wholesale from outlying communities. She will later raise the cow and sell it by order in the city of El Alto. This way of working allows her to generate resources to help, as much as possible, her household. She lives with her life partner, and she has four children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she said she likes the training about health and loans.

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.
