The Communal Association “Angoritas” is starting its third loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Panamericana Community Center. The group consists of eight members. This Communal Association is led by its Board of Directors. At the head of the Board is the President, Sra. Daysi. The members of the Communal Association engage in various businesses so that they can get ahead. These incluD. making dinnerware to use as gifts, sewing garments, selling sausages and potatoes from a kiosk, selling American brands of clothing, selling quilts, selling vegetables, and making clothing for pets.

Sra. Daysi, the President of the Communal Association, said that she has been a member of “Angoritas” for approximately a year and a half and has participated in three loan cycles. During this time, she has managed a business selling hamburgers and “salchipapas” (sausages and fried potatoes). Sra. Daysi did not have a business before. She used her first loan to buy supplies she needed to start her business such as bread, potatoes, oil, sausages, meat, and paper sacks. The loan for this cycle will be used to buy supplies in bulk, thus allowing her to save some money. Whenever the ladies purchase in bulk, the unit cost per item is less.

Daysi conducts her sales from a kiosk she borrowed from her aunt. Her business is open on Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. By working to this schedule, she is able to take care of her five children. Her greatest challenge is leaving them alone since her husband is deceased.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Daysi said she enjoys the opportunity to receive a loan with a group guarantee since she currently has no other type of guarantee. In addition, she has been treated well by the staff and is excited about continuing ahead.

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.
