The May 27th Communal Bank is starting its third loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Copacabana Community Center. This group consists of 10 members and is led by a Board of Directors headed by Sra. Susana. The members of the Communal Bank engage in different business such as selling “api” (a breakfast beverage made from corn), sewing, selling food, weaving, selling livestock, selling freeze-dried potatoes, and selling pork.


Sra. Susana says she joined Pro Mujer a year and a half ago after being invited by a promoter. She currently manages a business selling “api” that she started 10 years ago. Susana learned this trade from her mother.


The loan she is receiving now will be used to buy flour and sugar for making the pastries that are served with the “api”. She will buy her supplies at the Saturday fair in Batallas and then sell her products in La Paz. Working in this manner will generate income for Susana so that she can support her family. She is married and has four children.


When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Susana said that she enjoys the health services that are promoted through the organization’s wellness campaigns.

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.
