The Las Emprendedoras group has been working in our microfinance institute since 2008. The majority of its members have been with us since the beginning. This is a very active and unified group that provides goods and services.

MARIA CARMEN C., the group president, sells bread in La Ceja D. El Alto. With these loans, she has been able to help out her husband, who works as a wage-earning driver. In time, they plan to save enough money to be able to purchase their own vehicle so that the can improve their quality of life.

VICENTE C., the group secretary, is one of the group’s founders. He owns a sound equipment rental business. With these loans, he has been able to launch yet another business—a corner market—which helps him to support all 6 members of his family. With both of his businesses, he can increase his earnings and have financial stability.

CINDA G. B. sells provisions in the Villa Victoria zone. With these loans, she has managed to amass some working capital, which she uses for weekend food sales. She is also one of the founding group members. She has a sizable family, and she hopes to save more money for her grandchildren’s education.

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.
