The community association "RUBI" will begin its seventeenth cycle in Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal del Collpani. The group is composed of eight members and is managed by a Board of Directors of which Martha is the president. The businesses in which the members of the communal association are engaged are diverse, among them are: hand-crafted model cars, bakery, food sales, api (non-alcoholic maize drink) sales, knitted sweaters and sweatshirts, cosmetic sales and confectionary.

The loan they are taking out will benefit small micro-entrepreneurs where Martha is a member. She says that four years ago she joined Pro Mujer, at the invitation of her daughter who is a customer of the institution. At present, she owns a bakery business. She tells us that she began to build this business several years ago, learning from her mother and supplementing her knowledge in a training center to improve her product.

The loan that she is requesting now is to increase capital to purchase a mixer, which she will acquire from the wholesale vendors in the city of El Alto, and will later install in her retail space. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family since she is married and has three children.

When she was asked what she liked about Pro Mujer, she responded that she liked the colleagues she had met in 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.
