The communal bank, "Emprendedoras" is entering its first cycle in Pro Mujer, as part of its Los Andes regional office. The group is made up of eight members, and it is led by a board of directors of which Modesta is the president. The members of the group are involved in a variety of businesses including: selling socks, selling athletic clothing, weaving rugs, and selling food.

The loan that they are seeking will be used to help the small businesses of which Modesta is a member. She states that she joined Pro Mujer one year ago after receiving an invitation from a sponsor of the institution who visited her at her home. Currently, she has a business selling socks. She states that she learned this trade a few years ago from a friend who also sold socks. With time, she decided to become independent and start her own business.

The loan that she will receive will be used to increase her capital (purchasing socks in bulk), that she will acquire from wholesale stores in the city of El Alto, and later sell in her store. This form of work allows her to generate an income to support her family. She lives in a common-law marriage, and has two children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she enjoys the health care offered by the institution.

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.
