The “SEKE” community association will begin its nineteenth cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de Collpani. It is made up of nine members and managed by a Board, with Señora Silveria as President. The members of the community association make a living in various areas, including selling food, selling fruit, braiding blankets, selling beds, selling api, a non-alcoholic maize drink, and making shoes.

The loan they are requesting will benefit micro-entrepreneurs, including Señora Silveria. She says that she has been a member of Pro Mujer for seven years. She was invited to be a member by one of the organization's credit counselors, who went to visit her in her home.

She currently has a business selling food. She says that she learned about this business from her mother, some years ago. Later, she decided to set up her own business.

She will use the loan that she is requesting now to increase her capital (buying rice, pasta, and vegetables) which she will purchase from markets in the city of El Alto. Then, after building it, she will sell them on her stall. This work allows her to make money in order to support her family, as she has a partner and three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she said that she likes the health training it provides.

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.
