The "Pasión" communal bank will start its first cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Senkata Center. It is composed of ten members and is directed by a board headed by Graciela. The communal bank's members run a variety of businesses. Among them we have: sales of caps and scarves, sales of vicuña and alpaca blankets, blanket production, food sales, hat sales, sewing athletic clothing, and sewing slips.

Graciela indicates that this is her first cycle with Pro Mujer, having been admitted by invitation. Currently, she has a business selling chicharrones (pork rinds) in the towns. She has been doing this work for twenty years, learning it from her mother.

The loan that she will now receive is for increasing her capital (the purchase of meat and corn), which she will buy in La Ceja, and afterwards for making her products, which she will sell in the towns. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family as much as she can, since she is married and has five children.

When she is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says she likes the office and the loan.

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.
