The communal bank "SOL DE LUNA" is beginning its first Pro Mujer cycle at the social center in Alto Lima. The group is comprised of eight members and its board of directors is led by Eugenia, the president. The members are involved in different business activities, including: party events, stage builders, food sales, knitted sweaters, chicken sales, bookstore, sweets sales and transport services.

The loan they are requesting will benefit small business owners such as Eugenia who has been a member of Pro Mujer for a year now. She was invited to join by a colleague from the institution who visited her at home. Her current business is selling beans and grapes, which is a trade she learned from her mother who she used to help. After learning about sales she decided to set up her own business.

The loan she is requesting now is to increase her work capital to buy beans and grapes, wholesale, at the stores in the city of El Alto. She will then sell them at her stall. Her line of work allows her to generate an income to support her family since she is married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says it is the health area training provided by the institution.

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.
