The “Caseritas” communal lending group will begin their fourth cycle with Pro Mujer, as a part of the Panamericana regional office. It is composed of 8 members and is led by a board of directors, with María del Carmen as the treasurer. The members run a variety of businesses, including selling vegetables, light bulbs, blankets, pizza, cosmetics, and school supplies.

The loan they will take out will benefit micro-entrepreneurs, one of whom is María del Carmen. She says that this is her first loan cycle as a member of Pro Mujer. She joined on the invitation of a promoter who went to visit her in her home. She currently has a business selling pizzas. She explains that the business belonged to her mother-in-law and she learned to make pizzas with her. Later, her mother-in-law left the business to her, and she runs it now.

The loan she will take out now is to increase working capital by purchasing flour in the markets of the city of La Paz and after cooking with it, will sell in her sales space. This work allows her to generate income to support her household as well as possible; she is married and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says she likes the health support.

The group is accompanied by their credit counselor, Elizabeth, who is wearing pink.

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.
