The village bank KANTUTA is starting its ninth loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Senkata regional office. The group has eight members, and Rebeca is the chair of the board of directors. The members of the group earn their living in a variety of ways, including running a general store, making athletic clothing, and selling sweets, jackets, clothing, buttons, and food.
This loan will help these microentrepreneurs. Rebeca notes that she has had three loans with Pro Mujer, which she joined at the invitation of a friend who is a member of the institution. She currently has a hardware store, which she says she started seven years ago with the money she inherited from her mother.
She will use this loan to buy nails and bolts at the markets in the city of Oruro and then sell them in her business. This work allows her to bring in an income to support her family, since she lives with her partner and has two children.
When we ask her what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health care and the loans.

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.
