The “Unión Lealtad” (Loyalty Union) communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Panamericana Center. It has six members and is led by a governing body headed by Nilda. The businesses that the communal bank members carry out are varied. Among them are: cookie sales, DVD sales, commerce, production, farming and services.

Nilda has been in Pro Mujer for three years; she was invited to join by her mother. Currently she has a business selling cookies and DVDs that she’s had for six years and she started with help from her sister-in-law.

The loan she’ll take out now is to stock her merchandise (to buy cookies and DVDs). She buys this merchandise in Desaguadero and will sell it at the Extranca and 16 de Julio markets (commercial places in the city of El Alto). This way of working makes it possible for her to generate income to support the family as much as possible for she has two children.

When she is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the institution’s activities.

One of the members, María Luisa, does not appear in the photo because she was in a bad location.

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.
