The “Flor de Amancay” [Amancae Flower] Association is located in the Villa Adela neighborhood and has worked with Pro-Mujer for more than a year.

Most members are married and each has an average of five children; in many cases their spouses have abandoned them, leaving them solely responsible for their families. It is because of this that they started small businesses with the goal of obtaining household income.

The Flor de Amancay Association works in different markets and streets of the city selling diverse products such as school supplies, plastics, purses and bags, hair accessories, and other items. These products are obtained from wholesalers to then be retailed. This group needs increased credit in order to buy wholesale merchandise in greater quantities and in this way have greater earnings and sufficient income to maintain their households.

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.
