The communal association "EL PARAISO" is going to start its fourth cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de Villa Tejada. It has eight members and is led by a management team where Teodora is the president. The businesses that the members run are varied: sale of fast food, sale of cosmetics, sale of pots, bookstore, blanket making, sale of bell pepper, notebook making, glue making, etc.

The loan will benefit small microentrepreneurs, Teodora among them. She has been part of Pro Mujer for four years, after being invited by a colleague who is a member of the institution. She sells bell peppers, a business that she learned from her mother, whom she helped when she was a kid. When she had her first child, she decided to continue with the same business independently.

She will use the loan to invest in capital (buy bell peppers) in fairs in Bolivia and Perú. She will then sell it at her grocery store. This allows her to generate enough resources to support her household, as she is single and has one child.

When she is asked about what she likes in Pro Mujer, she says she likes the area of health.

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.
