The communal bank "Las Solidarias" will begin their eighth loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Pan American Regional Hub. It is formed by eight members and is directed by a board of directors, of which Clotilde is Treasurer. The businesses which the members carry out are varied, including: making crocheted baby clothes, selling food, and selling vegetables.

The loan they are taking out will benefit small microbusinesses of which Clotilde is a member. She says she joined Pro Mujer four years ago through the invitation of a friend who is a member of the institution. She currently has a garment-sewing business which she has had for four years; sewing is a skill she learnt in a technical course which she opted to take, and subsequently this knowledge gave her a way of generating income. The loan she is taking out is to increase capital (purchasing fabric), which she will obtain wholesale from the fairs in the city of El Alto and use to make garments to sell. This work allows her to generate income to support her family since she lives in a civil union and has a son.

When she was asked what she liked about Pro Mujer, she replied that she liked its healthcare services.

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.
