The Playa Verde village bank is starting its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Cascada regional office. The group has eight members, and Sancrestina is the secretary of the board of directors. The members' businesses are quite varied and include a butcher shop, a business making blankets and skirts, a neighborhood store, and a business weaving traditional Bolivian blankets.

This loan will help these microentrepreneurs. Sancrestina notes that she has had three loans with Pro Mujer, which she joined because of the publicity campaign the institution carried out in her area. She currently has a neighborhood store and makes skirts. She runs both businesses out of her home, which gives her a big advantage in educating her children.

This loan will increase her working capital and allow her to buy fabrics from wholesalers in the city of El Alto and then use them to fill her customers' orders. This business helps her bring in an income to support her family, since she is married and has five children.

When we ask her what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the low interest rate.

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.
