The "Sonko Suwa Warmisita" group is starting its first loan with "Pro Mujer" (For Women) as a part of the "Centro Focal de Panamericana" communal bank. It is made up of 9 members and is directed by a board of directors, where Modesta is the president. The businesses that the group members are a part of are varied and include activities such as selling linaza juice (a local fruit), wood finishing, running a convenience store, selling food, jewel crafting, knitting sweaters, and knitting backpacks.

The loan that they will take out will help small businesses that Modesta is a part of. She comments that this is the first loan that she is making with Pro Mujer. She is making it due to an invitation from a promoter of the institution that went to visit her at her house. Currently, she runs a convenience store. She started this business several years ago, but at first her business only sold breakfast foods.

The loan that she is getting is to increase her capital (buy rice, oil, and noodles) that she will get from the markets in the city of La Paz. The goods she buys will then be sold at her place of business. This form of work allows her to generate income to sustain her house (she is married and has a son).

When asked what it is that she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the loans and the health support.

This group is accompanied by their credit consultant, Francisca, who is pictured in the green sweater.

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.
