View original language description ↓
The main activity of the group "Sky" is making hand embroidered clothes, purses and folk disguises. They work with Pro-Mujer and take on much responsibility. They have already finalized the work that people have ordered, art work for stores, and folk disguises for fairs in the city of "La Paz."

The dream of the association is to export their products to the interior and exterior of the country. In order to do this, they need better credit to replenish their capital for work and be able to hire personnel to help them in the business. They already have orders that demand manual labor and much time and they will train these new employees in order to ensure the quality of their products. In this way, they will achieve better economic and personal status for the benefit of their homes.

El bordado a mano de carteras, monederos y disfraces folklóricos es la principal actividad de la asociación “Cielo”, que trabaja junto a Pro-Mujer con mucha responsabilidad.
Ya finalizados sus trabajos los venden a pedido, en tiendas de artesanía, tiendas de disfraces folklóricos y ferias de la ciudad de La Paz.
El sueño que la asociación, es el de exportar sus productos al interior y exterior del país. Para esto necesitan mayores créditos para reforzar su capital de trabajo y poder contratar personal que les ayude en este negocio ya que al ser una producción manual demanda mucho tiempo además de acceder a capacitaciones donde aprendan a promocionar sus productos de manera mas calificada. De esta manera logran crecimiento personal y económico, para el bien de sus hogares.

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.
