The nonprofit “Huatajata” began their second loan with Pro Mujer, as a part of Germán Busch’s focal group. The group is made up of nine members; the communal bank is run by a board headed by Mrs. Alejandrina. The businesses of the members of the communal bank are varied since they are in the sales, production and service sectors.

Mrs. Alejandrina says that this is the second year that she has been a part of the Pro Mujer Communal Bank, as she was invited to join by a promoter. At present, she has worked for two years weaving blankets, a trade that she learned from a friend.

The loan is to increase her merchandize (to buy fringes and wool) which will be bought at the 16th of July fair (a marketplace in the city of El Alto) and will be sold in the same market on Thursdays and Fridays. This work will allow Mrs. Alejandrina to have more income to support her family since she is married and has eight children.

In the picture we can see that Mrs. Josefa is not pictured since it is not allowed by her culture.

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.
