The communal association "LUZ A LAS NACIONES" is going to start its tenth cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de Villa Tejada. It has eleven members and is led by a management team where Angélica is the treasurer. The businesses that the members run are varied: sale of quilts, dressmaking, grocery store, shoe making, sale of sodas, sale of construction materials, sale of food, supplies and condiments, etc.

The loan will benefit small microentrepreneurs, Angélica among them. She has been part of Pro Mujer for thirteen years, after being invited by a colleague who is a member of the institution. She currently sells quilts, a business that she started with a small capital. Thanks to the loan with Pro Mujer, she was able to expand the business and now plans to sell in other cities.

She will use the loan to invest in capital (buy quilts) in wholesale stores in the city of El Alto. She will then sell the quilts at her retail space. This allows her to generate enough resources to support her household, as she is single.

When she is asked about what she likes in Pro Mujer, she says she likes simplicity in the loan process.

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.
