The communal bank 'Luz de Luna Brillante' will begin its fifth loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Collpani regional office. It is composed of eight members and is governed by a board of directors of which Alicia is president. The businesses carried out by the members of the bank are diverse and include braiding and weaving blankets, making sandals, selling dishes, selling lubricants, making tools, selling snacks, and selling food.

The loan Alicia will take out will benefit small micro-businesses of which she is a member. She indicates that two years ago she became a member of Pro Mujer after she was invited to join by a friend who is already a member. Currently, she runs an electronics shop. She started this business to support her current partner in the contracts that he had, learning the trade. To expand her services, she began to make independent contracts.

Alicia is taking this loan out to increase capital. She will buy tools from fairs in the city of El Alto and afterwards she will sell them in her shop. This type of work allows her to generate resources to maintain her home as much as possible since she lives in a common-law marriage and has four children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the trainings on health and the loans.

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.
