The Community Association group "CLAVELES L" will start their first loan cycle at Pro Mujer as part of the Patacamaya Focus Center. The group consists of eight members and is headed by a board of which Sofia is the President. The businesses that the members of the community association undertake are varied including a butcher shop, buying and selling sheep, a bakery, food sales, and two sell school supplies.
The loan they are taking out will bring benefits to the small microentreprises in which Sofia is an integral part. This is her first time with Pro Mujer, acting on an invitation of a promoter of the institution who went to visit her home. Today she has a business buying and selling sheep. She has had this business for several years and she learned this business from her parents who had the same business as a family enterprise.
The loan will now bring a capital increase (for the purchase of sheep) which she will acquire at the community markets in the department of La Paz and later sell in the marketplace. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her family as she is married with four children.
When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Sofia responds that she likes the loans and the health services 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.
