The “Naranjitas” community bank is starting its second loan cycle as part of the GERMAN BUSCH regional office. The group has nine members: eight women and one man. Salustio is the only man. The group's board is made up of the president, Lidia; the treasurer, Angélica and the secretary, María. The ladies' businesses are related to commerce, production and services. They include: bread sales, clothes sales, hat sales, blanket sales, vinegar sales, panel beater, hoop game sales, blanket weaving and 'tunta' sales (tunta is dried potato).

Lídia is the president of the community bank. She is married and has four children.

More than ten years ago, some friends taught Lídia to sell 'tunta' and, seeing that it was a business that made good profits, she decided to keep it going. She currently buys 'tunta' in the city of El Alto, in a business area called 'La Ceja', and she takes it to the city of Oruro to sell.

Lídia says that she will use her loan to buy more 'tunta' since it is a product that is very much in demand as it is an important ingredient in traditional festive meals such as 'saita de pollo'.

When we asked her what she most likes about Pro Mujer, she replied that she likes the loans.

The ladies of the Naranjitas community bank are happy in this picture because they are planning to share a meal on the day of this meeting. There are seven bank members in this photo and also the lady who cooked the meal (the lady in the orange sweater and checked waistcoat in the back row, standing up). Salustio's photo appears in the upper right-hand corner.

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.
