Papitas De Senkata Group
In this Group: Cecilia, Laura Mery, Virginia, Teodora, Lucia , Julio , Maruja, Hilaria
The Papitas de Senkata communal bank will start its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Main Focus of Senkata. It is composed of eight members and is led by a board of directors for which Cecilia is president. The businesses that the members of the communal bank run are varied. Among them are skirt-weaving, making llama blankets, a bookstore, selling api (a maize drink), selling food, selling fish, and selling pork.

The loan they will take out will benefit small micro-businesses, such as Cecilia's. She says that the first time she came to Pro Mujer, she was joining at the invitation of her friends who are members of the group. Now she has a business weaving and selling skirts. We have come to understand that she learned this business when she used to help her mother with the family business. Later, she decided to start her own business, and now she works with her daughters, and she is teaching them the same trade.

The loan that she is now taking out is to increase capital to purchase wool, which she will purchase from wholesale stores in the city of La Paz and later make to sell by order. This type of work allows her to generate revenue to support her family because she is married and has five children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the loan, saving, and the health program.

The group is accompanied by the daughter of one of the members; she is dressed in black (in the photo).

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.
