The communal bank "AZUCENAS" will begin its sixth loan cycle at the Pro Mujer women's program at the Los Andes Social Center. The group is comprised of nine members and the president is Otilia. All the members are involved in different businesses, such as a cleaning service, mattress sales, cosmetic sales, sweater sales, fruit sales, a bookstore and scrap metal sales.

The loan will benefit the small business owners, one of which is Otilia. She has been involved in the Pro Mujer program for two loan cycles and joined by invitation from a friend who is a member of the institution. Otilia currently has a hand-knitted sweater business which she started three years ago. She already knew how to knit and urgently needed a way to earn an income.

The loan she is requesting now is to increase her work capital to buy wool which she will acquire at the traditional fairs in the city of El Alto. Then she will make custom orders to sell to customers. This form of working allows her to generate an income for her family. She is married and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says it is the area of credit, health and training offered by the institution.

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.
