The Rositas de Chejecucho (Little Roses of Chejecucho) communal bank will start their first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de Achacachi (Achacachi Regional Office). The group has eight members and is led by a Board of Directors, of which Olinda is President.

The businesses that the members of the community association carry out vary, but they include crocheting blankets, selling onions, and a neighborhood convenience store.

The loan they are taking out will benefit small business owners, including Olinda. She says this is the first time she’s joined Pro Mujer after receiving an invitation from her mother who is a member of that institution. She currently has an onion-selling business and she has mentioned that she learned the business from her parents, since she worked on the family farm as a girl. After marrying, she decided to set up an independent workspace.

The loan that she’s taking out now is to raise her capital (to buy onion seeds), which she’ll buy from wholesale vendors from Ciudad de El Alto. After the crop grows, she’ll sell it using her retail space. This kind of work helps her to generate an income to support her family, since she’s married with 3 children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the training area and the meetings.

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.
