View original language description ↓
The association known as “Las Peritas” has been a part of the Pro-Mujer family for a year and is a group consisting of 17 members who work very responsibly. The majority of the group works selling used clothing, something that is not very lucrative, which is what led them to look for other types of activities. Now they plan to work making different items like school uniforms, backpacks, shoes and baby clothes to be sold in different markets around the city. Those sales will be made with the help of their children who will work the stands selling until late at night.

They affirm that they need the capital to be able to buy raw materials and special machinery to make their products and thereby achieve a better quality. That way their businesses will be prosperous for them and their families.

Translated from Spanish by Hugh Yarbrough, Kiva Volunteer.

La asociación “Las Peritas" pertenece a la familia de Pro-Mujer hace 1 año, grupo formado por 17 miembros que trabajan con mucha responsabilidad.
El grupo en gran parte se dedicaba a la venta de ropa usada, actividad que actualmente ya no es muy rentable lo que les llevo a buscar otro tipo de actividad. Ahora intentan dedicarse a la confección de distintos productos, como ser la confección en uniformes de escuela, mochilas, zapatos, y ropa de bebes, todos estos productos comercializados en las distintas feria de la ciudad, dichas ventas las realizan con la ayuda de sus hijos que deben quedarse en los puestos de venta hasta muy noche.
Afirman que necesitan capital para poder comprar materia prima y maquinaria especial para la fabricación de sus productos de esta manera lograr una mejor calidad de estos y así sus negocios prosperen para el bien de ellos y sus familias..

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.
