The communal bank "Alfa Omega" will begin its third cycle with Pro Mujer in the Germán Busch regional office. It is composed of 10 members. It is led by a board of directors, with Señora Marisol at its head. The members of the group have a variety of businesses; among them are making shoes, making and selling blankets, artisan rugs, selling condiments, hardware store, sales of used clothes, store, and furniture sales.

Señora Marisol points out that she joined a communal association at Pro Mujer eight years ago, at the invitation of her mother. At the present time she has a workshop for making shoes, which she began five years ago with the support of her family.

The loan that she will take out now is to increase her capital so that she can buy leather, shoe soles, etc., which she buys wholesale in La Ceja. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family as much as she can, since she is married and has three children.

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

Señora Teodora does not appear in the photograph, since she moved suddenly.

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.
