The communal association "ROSARIO DE CORAPATA" is going to start its first cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de Copacabana. It has eight members and is led by a management team where Amalia is the president. The businesses that the members run are varied: sale of cheese and milk, and dressmaking.

The loan will benefit small microentrepreneurs, Amalia among them. This is the first time she is part of Pro Mujer, after being invited by a colleague who is a member of the institution. She currently has a business where she sells milk. This is her family business and she decided to continue independently.

She will use the loan to invest in capital (buy barley) in communal fairs close to where she lives. She will then feed her animals to commercialize the milk later on. This allows her to generate enough resources to support her household, as she is married and has five children.

When she is asked about what she likes in Pro Mujer, she says she likes that the loan benefits women.

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.
