The Communal Bank “Las Reynas Fortalieza” (The Queens of Fortitutde) is starting its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Los Andes Community Center. The group consists of nine members and is lead by a Board of Directors headed by Sra. Rufina, who is the woman in the photograph wearing glasses. The members of the Communal Bank engage in various businesses to get ahead such as carpentry, running a “salchipapas” (sausages and potatoes) kiosk, running a candy kiosk, selling food, selling beans and pork, sewing handbags, selling sweets, producing backpacks, and producing blankets.


Sra. Rufina says this is the first time she has worked with Pro Mujer. She joined the organization after being invited by a promoter. She currently manages a bookstore that she started 12 years ago.


Her loan will be used to increase her capital for buying notebooks, sheets of paper, and pencils. She buys in bulk in the neighborhoods of La Ceja and July 16th and then sells her merchandise at home. Working in this manner allows her to generate income to support her family. Rufina is married and has two children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Rufina said she enjoys the health services.


Sra. Wilma does not appear in the photograph because she was at the health clinic.

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.
