The A.C. "CHAQUIS" group will begin their second loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de Panamericana. This group consists of eight members and is led by a board of directors, of which Isidora is the president. The business activities that the members carry out are varied and include: Alpaca wool spinning, sports jackets sales, cleaning services, backpack sales, "tucumanas" (typical pies) sales and blanket weaving.

The loan they receive will help benefit small micro-businesses of which Isidora is a member. She mentions that she became a part of Pro Mujer six months ago, after being invited by a promoter of the institution who went to visit her at her house. Now she has a business selling doors. She started this business herself four years ago.

The loan she will now receive is to increase her capital (buying doors) from the carpentry shops in the city of El Alto and later she will sell them in her sales room. This way of working allows her to generate enough profit to maintain her family, as she is married and has five children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she mentioned that she likes the quick payments.

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.
