The Community Group "Tahuantinsuyo" is about to start their first business cycle with Pro Mujer as a part of the Juan Pablo Community Center. This group of entrepreneurs is made up of eight women and is run by a board of directors, of which Salome is president. The group members work in various trades, including: running a convenience store, selling clothing, running a bakery, selling jewelry, sewing and weaving blankets, etc.

The funds from this loan will be put toward the business endeavors of all the group members, including Salome's business. Salome joined Pro Mujer two years ago at the invitation of a friend who is also a member. Salome currently runs a convenience store in her neighborhood, a business she learned by observing a couple of her neighbors in their business endeavors. She eventually decided to pull together what savings she could to open her own store.

With the support from this loan, Salome plans to purchase beer in bulk to stock her convenience store. She buys products for her store from wholesale distributors in El Alto and then sells them at her store. This business is her primary source of income for providing for her family, which includes her husband and two children. When asked what she likes about being a member of Pro Mujer, Salome answered that she likes the flexible credit plans, the training she receives and the health services that Pro Mujer offers as well.

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.
