The “Dos de Febrero” (February 2) communal bank will start its second cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Senkata Center. It has 10 members and is led by a governing board headed by Fanny. The businesses the members carry out are varied. Among them are: dressmaking, snack sales, sportswear making, potato sales, neighborhood store, CD sales and food sales.

Fanny indicates that this is the first cycle she’s worked with Pro Mujer; a girl friend invited her to join. She currently has a wholesale snack sales business that she started with her husband. She tells us that one day they were passing through Ceja and decided to buy snacks gradually increasing their business. Now, they sell wholesale and on order.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital (snacks) that they will buy at wholesale in Ceja and then sell very day during the morning and afternoon with her husband. This way of working allows her to generate income to support her family in whatever way is possible; she is married and has two children.

When she is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health training.

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.
