The "Estrellas de Tarapaca" communal bank is entering is first cycle in Pro Mujer, as part of its Senkata regional office. The group is made up of nine members, and is led by a board of directors of which Lourdes is the president. The members of the group are involved in a variety of businesses including: selling candy and jellies, selling noodle soups, selling coca, selling food, sewing blankets and sweaters, car repair shops, boardinghouses, farming, selling moonshine.

The loan that they are requesting will benefit the small businesses in which Lourdes is a member. She states that this is her first time joining Pro Mujer, having joined after being invited by a sponsor of the institution who visited her at her home. Currently, she has a business selling food. She learned this trade from observing other women who sold this product, watching how it was sold, how the business was run, and which foods sold most. She later decided to open her own business.

This loan will be used to increase her capital (purchasing food in bulk), which she will acquire in the markets of the city of El Alto, and after preparing them, she will sell them in her restaurant. This form of work allows her to earn an income to support her family, as she is married and has three children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she states that she enjoys the health training that the institution's staff offers.

In the picture, one of the members of the group is not shown because she had to go to her business.

Esta forma de trabajo le permite generar recursos para apoyar a su familia, ya que ella es casada y tiene tres hijos.

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.
