The "Mujeres Mananeras" communal association is starting its 7th loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de Los Andes. The group is made up of twelve members, and is led by an executive board of which Carmen is the president. The members operate a variety of businesses including: a neighborhood store, selling clothing, selling food seasoning, selling gloves, providing call center services, selling woolen cloth and veils, operating a guest house, selling blankets, and selling chickens. The loan will benefit small businesses such as the one run by Carmen, who says that she joined Pro Mujer three years ago at the invitation of her sister who is a member. She now has a business weaving and selling blankets, which is an activity that she learned on her own initiative several years ago. At first she learned it as a hobby, but later she saw that it could help her to earn income. The loan that she is taking now is to increase her capital (by buying wool), which she buys from wholesale vendors in the city of El Alto and then uses to produce the products that she sells in her sales location. This work allows her to earn income to support her family, as she is married. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she said that she likes its focus on health and the group meetings.

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.
