The “VIRGEN DE GUADALUPE” community association will begin its thirtieth cycle in Pro Mujer, as a part of the Centro Focal de Villa Tejada. It is made up of nine members and directed by a board headed by Señora Hilda. The members of the community association have various businesses, including selling food, weaving knitwear, making jackets and selling sweets.

The loan they receive will benefit small micro-entrepreneurs including Señora Hilda. She explains that she joined Pro Mujer fifteen years ago, after being invited by a friend who was a member of the organisation. She currently has a business making and selling jackets. She set up this business with the first loan she obtained from Pro Mujer, also learning how to make clothing in the technical courses given by the organisation.

She will use this loan to increase her capital (to buy leather) which she purchases from markets in the city of El Alto. She then sells it in her sales outlet. This way of working allows her to make money to support her household as much as possible, because she is single and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the training sessions on loans and health.

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.
