The communal association "KANTUTITAS " are starting their third cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Achacachi Focal Centre. The association has 8 members and is run by a board of which Flora is the President. The businesses run by members of the community association are varied including: raising rabbits, agriculture and livestock, purchase and sale of cattle, selling milk, ice cream sales, raising chickens and selling cheese.
The loan which they will take out will benefit small microentrepreneurs where Flora is a member.She says that it is the first time that she has been a member of Pro Mujer , she joined after being invited by one of the institution's consultants who visited her at home. Today she has a business selling ice cream; she says that she started this business several years ago with the support of her husband, who already knew the trade.
The loan which she is now taking out is in order to increase her capital for the purchase of essences and a refrigerator - which she will buy in the shops of the city of El Alto - and then after making the ice-cream she will sell it in her retail space. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her family, as she is married and has three children.

When I ask what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replies that she likes the training offered by the institution.

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.
