The “LUZ CON ESPERANZA” community association is in its first cycle of Pro Mujer, as part of the Collpani center. It’s made up of eight members and directed by a board of directors where Esperanza serves as the president. The members’ businesses include making blouses and skirts, shoe repair, a neighborhood store, rug braiding, food sales, and arts and crafts.

This loan will benefit their small companies, of which Esperanza is a part. She says that this is her first time with Pro Mujer, having joined on the invitation of a friend who is also a member. Currently she has a knitting business and sells blankets. She says that she learned this business in her previous job, where she did the same thing. She later decided to go on her own.

This loan will allow her to increase her capital (buy yarn and fringe) from the stores in La Paz and then she will use it to make and sell in her space. This will allow her to generate income to maintain her household. She lives with her husband and has four children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the health care that it offers.

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.
