View original language description ↓
The association called “Luna Brillante” is part of the Pro-Mujer family. It is located in the Senkata neighborhood in the city of El Alto. To date it consists of 14 members that have proven to be an organized group when it comes to their loan payments and internal activities. Within the group, the majority of the women are married with children, almost all of whom are in school or attending university.

Trade is the principal activity of the "Luna Brillante" Association. In general, they all sell items like condiments and spices, cereals and light clothing. They purchase their products at wholesale prices and then sell to consumers. They want to invest capital to purchase more at wholesale to increase their profits and meet the obligations they each have with their families.

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.
