The communal association "LAS PEREGRINAS" is going to start its first 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 Tania is the president. The businesses that the members run are varied: sale of backpacks and purses, sale of food, embroidery, sale of condiments, taxi services, sale of shoes, sale of sodas and griddles, etc.

The loan will benefit small microentrepreneurs, Tania among them. This is her first time with Pro Mujer, after being invited by a colleague who is a member of the institution. She currently sells backpacks and purses, a business that she started when she got married thanks to her mother-in-law, who lent her some money. She has increased her offer, which is why she needs the loan.

She will use the loan to invest in capital (backpacks and purses) that she will buy to wholesale retailers in the city of El Alto. She will then sell them in her retail space. This allows her to generate enough resources to support her household, as she is married and has one child.

When she is asked about what she likes in Pro Mujer, she says she likes the area of health and training, the consultancy services, the savings and the loans.

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.
