Norma U. is the current president of the group 'Kory Chuyma'. The group's members have been meeting regularly once every two weeks for the past 8 years.
All women in the group own their own business: some sell fruits and food; others make and sell clothes. They request the loan to buy raw materials like fabric, lining and wool, and the ones that sell goods need the loan to buy their merchandise. 51-year-old Genoveva de U., for example, sells fruits in the streets of El Alto; she doesn't have her own shop, so she walks around street fairs and markets offering her products.

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.
