The community association group "AMIGAS DE SAJAMA" will begin its third cycle at Pro Mujer as part of the regional office of Villa Adela. The group is composed of eight members and is headed by a board of which Natty is the President. Businesses that the members of this community association group carry out are varied and include knitting sweaters, weaving macrame, selling food, producing skirts, domestic service, and sewing sportswear.

The loan they are requesting will be useful for a small microentrepreneur like Natty. She has been working with Pro Mujer for four loan cycles, entering on the invitation of her friend who is also a member of the institution. Today she has a business selling fabric, blankets, and sweaters she makes with a weaving technique that she learned from her mother several years ago. She decided to begin her business after learning these lessons.

The loan she is requesting will be used to increase her working capital for the purchase of wool at wholesale shops in the city of El Alto. She will then make her product and sell it in her retail space. This business allows her to generate resources to maintain her home for her husband and three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Natty responds that she likes the saving program 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.
