The communal bank "LAS PACEÑAS" is beginning its first loan cycle in Pro Mujer, which belongs to the Cascada Social Center. It is comprised of 11 members and led by a board of directors presided over by Mrs. Tomasa. The businesses of the members vary and include: sewing, minivan repair parts sales, knitting of sweaters, iodized salt sales, macrame weaving, convenience store, diner, sweets sales and blanket macrame.

Mrs. Tomasa says this is her second cycle in Pro Mujer and she was invited to join by promoters in the area.

She plans to use the loan to buy sweets (to increase her capital) in Ceja (a commercial area in El Alto city). She will sell them in the "Escuela Repubica de Japón" school from Monday through Friday, all day long. This work allows her to generate an income to support her family as best she can. She is single and lives with her two children.

When asked what she likes best about Pro Mujer, she says health is most important.

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.
