The “TREBOL DE PALCOCO” communal association will begin its second cycle at Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de Copacabana. It is comprised of eight members and has a board of directors, of which Rolanda is the President. The businesses that the members of the communal association have are varied and include: buying and selling livestock, the sale of food, artisanal crafts, a neighborhood store, the weaving of blankets, and foraging for animals.

The loan they are taking out will benefit a group of small business owners, of which Rolanda is a member. She indicates that she joined Pro Mujer a year ago, joining in by invitation from a promoter of the institution who visited her in her home. She currently has a neighborhood store business; she says that she started this business upon seeing the need that she and her neighbors had in their community.

The loan she is taking out now is to increase capital (to buy rice, sugar and canned goods), which she will acquire wholesale at the markets in the city of El Alto and will subsequently sell in her store. This kind of work allows her to generate resources to maintain her family, as she is married and has four children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes saving money. Senora Carmen is not in the photograph because she was at her place of business.

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.
