The Daughters of Illampu Association will begin their fourth loan cycle with Kiva partner Pro Mujer ("Pro Women"), as part of the Achacachi Focal Center. The group includes ten members and is directed by a board in which Soledad serves as president. The members' businesses are varied and include: owning a bookstore, running a shop, chauffeuring, mining, selling fruit, selling food and sewing quilts.

Loans that are taken out by the Association benefit the microentrepreneurs, of whom Soledad is a constituent. It has been two years since she formed the Pro Mujer group at the invitation of a promoter of the institution who came to visit her at her home. Soledad owns a business selling salchipapas, a local snack of potatoes and fried sausages. The business was launched several years ago when she changed jobs.

The loan that the group is requesting now will be used in part to buy potatoes by the quintal (100 kg) at wholesale prices from local vendors. The product will then be made and sold in its retail space. This workflow will allow Soledad to generate maximum income to provide as much support as possible to her household, since she is married and has four children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she repsonds that she likes receiving the loans and health training.

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.
