A.C. “CORAPATA CENTRAL” will begin its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de Copacabana. It is made up of 10 members and is run through a directive board. Susana is the Chairwoman of the board. The members of the community association have various businesses, including: milk sales, cattle sales, corner stores and cheese sales.

The loan requested will benefit a number of small businesses, Susana's business among them. This is the first time Pro Mujer has taken part and Susana found out about the opportunity through a friend who is a member of the institution. Currently, she runs a business producing and selling cheese. She began the business on her family's suggestion, after they saw that she had some milking cows, which are the primary source of production.

The loan will help to increase her animal stock which she will buy from neighbouring communities. After raising her cattle, she will then be able to make the product she sells. This type of work allows her to generate income to maintain her household, as she is married and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the benefits on health and liquidity.

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.
