The "San Sebastian B" community group will begin its first loan with Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Adela focal center. It is made up of 14 members and is run by a board of directors, of which Maria is the president. The members run various businesses, including a bookstore, a hardware store, a neighborhood store, salchipapa sales, blanket sales, clothing sales, snack sales, sneaker sales, artisan crafts, food sales, dried potato sales, and a coffee shop.

The loan that they are taking out will benefit small businesses like Cecilia's. She tells us that this is the first time that she has joined Pro Mujer and that she joined because a friend, who is a member of the institution, invited her. She currently has a business selling snacks. She started this business two years ago. After she had the opportunity to travel and get to know the dynamic of the sales of these products, she decided to open her own business.

The loan that she is requesting is to increase capital (purchase snacks in bulk). She will purchase the snacks in the markets in the city of El Alto and later sell them at her store. This job allows her to generate resources to support her family, since she is single and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the health focus that the institution offers.

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.
