The “JANCO PAMPITA” communal bank is starting its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Achacachi regional center. It is composed of eight members and is governed by a board, which is headed by Lorenza. The businesses pursued by the communal bank's members are diverse, including sales of chuño [dehydrated potatoes], chuño production, mechanic services, potato sales, mason services, and fruit sales.

Lorenza reports that this is her first time working with Pro Mujer and that she joined the institution on the invitation of the promoter. Currently, she has a business in which she sells potatoes and chuño. She has operated this business for ten years, having learned the profession from her mother.

The loan she is currently requesting will be used to increase her capital (buying chuño and potatoes). She will buy the products from dealers in Achacachi and sell them at La Ceja market on Thursdays and Saturdays. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family, since she is married and has two children.

In the photograph, the group is also accompanied by Justina, who withdrew because of family problems; she is wearing a brown blanket and black hat.

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.
