The community association “BOLIVAR 1” will begin its second cycle in Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de Los Andes. It is made up of eight members and directed by an executive board on which Señora Antonia is the President. The community association's members run various businesses, including a grocery store, a clothing store, blanket weaving, fruit selling and clothes selling.

The loan they receive will benefit small microentrepreneurs including Señora Antonia. She explains that that she joined Pro Mujer four years ago, on the invitation of a friend who is a member of the institution. Today, she has a neighborhood store. She says that she began this business when she observed that her area lacked this service, and decided to request a loan from Pro Mujer. Since then, she has worked in this business.

She will use the loan she will now obtain to increase her capital (buying rice, sugar, oil and preserves) from distributors in the City of El Alto. She will then sell them in her store. This work enables her to generate resources to maintain her home as much as possible, as she is single and has one child.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she said that she likes the health area.

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.
