The "SAN PEDRO DE HUATAJATA" communal association is starting its fourth loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Copacabana focal center. It is made up of eight members, and is led by an executive committee of which Lidia is the president. The businesses that the members of the communal association operate are varied, and include: selling vegetables, selling meat and cheese, selling fish, and selling jerky. The loan that is being taken will benefit small microbusiness owners such as Lidia. She says that she joined Pro Mujer two years ago, after having been invited by an organizer from the organization who came to visit her in her home. She now has a business selling meat and cheese. She says that she learned this business from her friends who were working in it, and with a bit of capital she started her own business. The loan will be used to increase her capital (by buying wholesale cheese and meat) that she will acquire in her community and will then sell in tropical communities where such products do not exist. This type of work allows her to earn income to support her family, as she lives in a common-law relationship and has four children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the loans and the training that the organization provides.

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.
