The communal bank "ROSAS DE OLLAJSANTIA" is beginning its first loan cycle through the Pro Mujer Program which is run by the Social Center of Los Andes. The group is comprised of eight members whose management board is chaired by Julia. The members' businesses are varied and include a convenience store, sweater and blanket weaving, food sales, plaster sales and vegetable sales.

The loan being requested will benefit small business owners including Julia. She says this is her first Pro Mujer experience and she joined by invitation from a promoter of the institution who visited her at home. Julia is in the business of selling plaster and she learned the trade through her husband who already worked in the sector. After they married they decided to increase their work capital.

The loan is to be used as work capital to buy plaster in communities in the department of La Paz. Julia will later sell it on an order basis. Her work allows her to earn enough income to support the family. She is married and has six children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says it is the training regarding health and credit.

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.
