The communal association “SIEMPRE AMIGAS” will begin its twenty-sixth cycle with Pro Mujer as part of Centro Focal de Panamericana. It is a group that is comprised of eight members and is led by a board of directors in which Ms. Celestina is the Secretary. The members of this communal association run various businesses, some of which are: weaving turtlenecks, sewing traditional skirts, making jewellery, selling apples, selling products, selling vegetables, selling fruit, and selling sandals.

The loan will be beneficial to small microbusinesses of which Celestina is a member. She states that she has been a member of Pro Mujer for twenty-six cycles by the invitation of a friend who wanted to create a Pro Mujer group. Today she has a business in which she sells vegetables, something that she learned to do in her youth and has been working at it for more than 30 years.

The loan for which she is now applying will be used to increase capital (to buy vegetables) that she will purchase from sellers in the city of El Alto, and will then sell in her sales space. This line of work allows her to generate resources for her family since she is divorced and has four children.

When asked what she liked about Pro Mujer, she responded that she liked 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.
