The Flor de Amapola communal bank will begin its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Cascada regional center. It is comprised of ten members and led by a board of directors. Josefina is the treasurer. The businesses of the members are varied and include selling chilies, selling groceries, selling traditional skirts, selling bread, selling food, and selling livestock.

The loan they will take out will benefit small businesswomen where Josefina is a member. She says that this is the first time she has been a member of Pro Mujer. She joined by invitation from her friends, who are members of the institution. She currently has a business selling groceries. She says that she learned this business from her neighbor, who sold the same products.

The loan that she will now take out is to buy rice, sugar, and noodles that she will get at the traditional stores in the city of El Alto. She will later sell them at her sales space. Working this way allows her to generate resources to support her family. She is single and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replied that she likes the loan and health trainings that the institution has.

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.
