The group “Flor de Haba” will begin its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Los Andes Focal Center. It has six members and is managed by a board of directors of which Natty is President. The members of the group are involved in various businesses, which include: knitting baby clothes, handmade dolls for export, and the sale of bound notebooks.

The loan they are requesting will benefit micro-entrepreneurs of which Natty is a member. She says that this is her first time with Pro Mujer, joining after a friend who is a member of the institution invited her. Currently, she has a business selling baby clothes. She learned the business from a sister-in-law who also sells the products.

The loan she is requesting is to increase her capital (by buying baby blankets) that she will buy from distributor companies and later sell at the markets in El Alto city. This work allows her to generate income to support her family as much as she can, as she is married and has a son.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she said she enjoys the health education they provide.

La A.C. “FLOR DE HABA” iniciará el primer ciclo en Pro Mujer, como parte del Centro Focal de Los Andes, está compuesta por seis integrantes y está dirigida por una mesa directiva donde la señora Natty es la Presidenta. Los negocios que las integrantes de la asociación comunal llevan adelante son variados entre ellos existen: tejido de ropa de bebe, artesanía en muñequería para exportar, venta de cuadernos empastados.

El crédito que sacaran beneficiara a pequeñas microempresarias donde la señora Natty es integrante, ella indica que es la primera vez que integra Pro Mujer, ingresando por invitación de su amiga que es socia de la institución. En la actualidad ella tiene un negocio de venta de ropa de bebe; cuenta que este negocio lo aprendió de su cuñada que comercializaba estos productos.

El crédito que ahora sacará es para el aumento de capital (compra de frazadas de bebe) que adquirirá de las empresas distribuidoras y posteriormente lo comercializará en las ferias de la ciudad de El Alto. Esta forma de trabajo le permite generar recursos para mantener en lo posible a su hogar pues ella es casada y tiene un hijo.

Cuando se le consulta qué le gusta de Pro Mujer, ella responde que le gusta las capacitaciones del área de salud.

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.
