The Pajsimama group began the sixth cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de Senkata. It is made up of eight members and is directed by a board where Fabiana is the Treasurer. The businesses that the members of the community association manage are various. Among them are selling vegetables, hosiery, chicken, fruit, network games, clothes, and sewing sweatshirts.

The loan that they are taking will benefit the small enterprises where Fabiana is a member. She indicated that she joined Pro Mujer two years ago, joining on the invitation of one of her friends who was a member of the institution. Currently, she has a neighborhood shop business. She says that she learned this business on the recommendation of her parents after she married.

The loan that she will take now is to expand capital (purchase rice, noodles, sugar, etc.) that she will acquire in the markets of the city of La Paz and later will sell from her shop. This form of work allows her to generate resources since she is married and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she responded that she likes the training about loans and health.

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.
