* not pictured
The Senkata center, which pertains to the “Chorolque” association that has been working with Pro-Mujer for about a year, is located on highway 6 de marzo in the city of El Alto. Most members are married and have an average of about 4 children each. Work for the “Chorolque” association starts very early in the morning. The members found food sales to be very lucrative. They were previously involved in another type of business, but it did not turn out to be as lucrative as expected. Alejandrina owns a stand on 6 de marzo Avenue (near Senkata) in which she sells candy, soft drinks, empanadas, and more. Marisol owns a stand in which she prepares and sells fast food, such as salichipapas (street food that consists of fries and sausages), fried chicken, hamburgers, tucumanas (fried pastry stuffed with meat and vegetables), and stuffed mashed potatoes. Guadalupe makes traditional llauchas (oven-baked cheese empanadas), which she sells on the city streets. They all have the dream of improving their small businesses, which is why they need loans so that they can purchase supplies in greater quantities, thus they can increase sales and generate more profits, which will benefit their families.

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.
