The Flor de Haba communal bank is going to start its third cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Andes regional hub. It is made up of eight members and is lead by a Board of Directors, of which Natty is President. The businesses that the members carry out are varied; among them are: guitar-making, carpentry, cellular phone sales, clothing sales, exporting Andean dolls, and sweater sales.

The loan that they are taking out will benefit small-time microentrepreneurs, one of whom is Natty. She says that she joined Pro Mujer three cycles ago, signing up due to an invitation from one of the organization’s promotors, who visited her in her home. She currently has a business exporting artisan dolls. She shares that she began this type of work to help her aunt with her aunt’s business. Later she decided to begin her own business to help her husband.

The loan that she is taking out is to increase her capital and buy fabric, which she will get from the wholesale stores in El Alto city. After making the dolls, she will sell them in her business. This type of work allows her to generate income to support her family, because she is married and has a child.

When she is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the organization’s health sphere.

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.
