The “AGUILAS DEL SUR” (Eagles of the South) communal bank will start its second cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Los Andes Focal Center. It has 8 members and is led by a governing board headed by Justina. The members carry out a variety of businesses. Among them are: furniture sales, minibus helper, neighborhood store, hat making, cheese sales, skirt sales, macramé blanket weaving.

Justina states that this is the first cycle she’s worked with Pro Mujer; her sister invited her to join. She currently has a neighborhood store that she’s run for the last five years with help from her husband. The loan she will take out now is to buy merchandise to increase the stock in her store. She will buy it in La Ceja (commercial part of the city of El Alto). This way of work allows her to generate income to support her family because she’s married and has six children but does not live with her husband.

When she’s asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she answers that she likes the health office.

In the photograph we can see that they are enjoying a community breakfast and because of this Justina’s cousin appears with her in the group but Jorge is not in the photo because he had to take an exam.

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.
