The “AMAPOLAS” (Poppies) communal bank is starting its second cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Exaltación Focal Center. It has 8 members: one man and 7 women.

The “AMAPOLAS” communal bank set up its governing board thus: Eva Ema is President, Catalina is Treasurer and Celia is Recording Secretary. The businesses the members are involved in are varied. They have to do with commerce, services and production. Among them we have: daily meals, food sales, carpentry, hardware store, kitchenware sales, alpaca sweater weaving and cosmetics sales.

Eva, “Amapolas” communal bank President tells us that she’s currently running a daily meals preparation business. It’s been in existence two years. She used to sell in a stand in the city of La Paz. She changed business because she felt her children needed more of her attention, in particular her fifteen-year-old (the youngest). This is why she started this business much closer to home. She used the prior loan to buy foodstuffs. The loan she’s requested now will be used to buy kitchen equipment, which she needs to renovate; any remainder will be used to buy food.

Eva is a woman living with her three children: two boys and one girl. Her oldest son is married and lives in another house. Eva is proud of her children because she has supported them by herself and has provided them with education so that they have become upstanding citizens. She has worked with Pro Mujer for two cycles.

When she’s asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she answers that she likes to share with her fellow members.

In the photo there are nine women because the mother of one of the members attended; she’s carrying an infant in her arms.

En el caso de la señora Eva, la presidenta de la asociación comunal “Amapolas”, indica que actualmente tiene como negocio la atención de una Pensión. Este negocio tiene dos años de existencia, antes vendía en un puesto en la ciudad de La Paz. Cambio de negocio por que pienso que sus hijos necesitaban más de su atención, en particular su hija quinceañera (la menor), por eso inició este negocio mucho más cerca de su domicilio. Su crédito anterior fue invertido en la compra de víveres, el crédito que ha solicitado ahora será invertido en la compra de cocinas, las que necesita renovar, el saldo le servirá para comprar víveres.

La señora Eva es una mujer que vive con sus tres hijos, dos varones y una mujer, el hijo mayor ya se encuentra casado y vive en otra casa, la señora Eva se encuentra orgullosa de sus hijos por que ella sola ha podido satisfacer todas las necesidades del hogar, y lograr que ellos estudien y sean personas de bien. Ha trabajado con Pro Mujer desde hace dos ciclos.
Cuando se le consulta qué le gusta de Pro Mujer, ella responde que le gusta es compartir con sus compañeras. En la foto se presentan nueve señoras, pues la mamá de una de ellas estuvo presente, llevaba un bebé en los brazos.

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.
