The San Roque Communal Association is starting its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Panamericana Community Center. The group consists of eight women who have joined together to request a loan as well as receive health services and training. Being a Communal Association that is meeting for the first time, the group is observed to have enthusiasm even though some of the members display shyness.


Several types of businesses are represented: selling cleaning products, handmade purses, food, Wallake (a fish stew also called “Karachi”), straw, handmade jackets, and general merchandise. The San Roque Communal Association is led by its Board of Directors: Sra. Ana María (President), Sra. Sofía (Treasurer), and Sra. Flora (Secretary of Records).


Sra. Ana María serves as the Communal Bank president. She is a young woman who is 27 years of age. Even though she has not formalized the relationship with her partner, they have a young son and hope to have a second child. Sra. Ana María learned how to sew several years ago in the neighboring country of Argentina. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy an upright sewing machine. Today her work consists of sewing for her customers who bring her cut pieces and she is in charge of making the finished product. When her workload increases, she has the help of her siblings.


When asked what she likes most about Pro Mujer, Sra. Ana María responded with “the savings and having available cash”.

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.
