The “MAYAKI SARTASIÑANI” community bank are starting their first loan cycle as part of the Villa Adela regional office. The group has eight members and Luisa is the group's president. The members carry out a number of different business activities including: making blankets by hand, selling coffee, running an Internet cafe, sewing jackets, selling food, selling Esika brand products and selling cosmetics.

Luisa tells us that she has been a member of a Pro Mujer community bank for five years. She was invited to join by a loan officer. Luisa currently has a handicraft business selling blankets and making baby sweaters. She has been in this business for some years.

Luisa is requesting this loan to increase her capital. She will buy fringes and fabric in the traditional street markets in the city of La Paz and, after making her goods, she will sell them to order to stores. This work helps her to support her family. Luisa lives with her partner and has one child.

When we asked her what she likes about Pro Mujer, Luisa replied that she likes the health services, the loans and the saving.

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.
