The Community Association "December 30th" is beginning its second lending cycle through Pro Mujer, as part of the Andes focal center. The Association is made up of ten members and is led by a board headed by Señora Patricia. The businesses that community association members conduct are varied, among them are: manufacturing overalls, selling American clothes, making canvas and rope, a workshop for sewing and mattresses, selling candles, selling sodas and selling fresh agave.

Señora Patricia says that she's been working with Pro Mujer for a year, and that she integrated with the institution at the invitation of a spokesperson in the area. She currently has a business braiding agave fibers. It's a business that she has been working in for two years, learning it from her family.

The loan that she will now be drawing on is to raise capital for the purchase of fibers that she acquires on Huyustus Street and sells to order in different markets. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family, as she is married and has four children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says she likes the savings.

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.
