The A.C. "Lurawisa" began its 20th cycle in the communal bank Pro Mujer as part of the Panamercan focus. This group is made up of 7 members and is managed by Senora Celia. The businesses of the various members include small shops, handcrafted table cloths, bakeries, and school supplies.

Celia has had a business selling school supplies for many years, and this is the first time she has worked with Pro Mujer, joining through an invitation. The credit they are requesting will help all the businesses, and Celia will use her share to purchase school supplies in La Paz, which she then sells in her area. This work enables her to generate income to support her family. She is married and has 3 children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she said it helps her to increase her 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.
