The communal bank ’16 de Julio’ are starting their eleventh cycle in ‘ProMujer’, belonging to the Regional Office Los Andes. It is made up of nine members and has a board of directors of which Lucia is the President. The businesses that its members have are varied. They include food sales, clothes making, sales of provisions, and crafts.

The loans they receive help the micro-entrepreneurs, of which Lucia is a member. She has been with’ ProMujer’ for 11 years. She joined on invitation by her friends, who are also members. Currently, she has a business making and selling crafts. She tells us that she learnt this trade several years ago when she got married. She used to make and decorate the crafts together with her husband, but since he died, she has carried on with the family business alone.

The loan she is asking for at the moment is to increase her capital (and buy cloth) which she will buy from wholesalers at El Alto city. After preparing her goods, she will sell them at her stall. This work helps her to generate an income to support her family, as she is a widow and has five children.

When she is asked what she likes about ‘ProMujer’, she says the training in health and credit which the institution offers.

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.
