The SUMA PANCARA community bank is starting on its first round of funding from Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Cascada. The group has eight members and is managed by a board lead by Sra. Elena. The members operate businesses such as: alpaca wool sales, fruit sales, bread sales, toy sales and sewing services.

Sra. Elena, who says this is the first time that she has worked with Pro Mujer, was invited to join the group. She has operated a business selling vicuna thread for four years.

Sra. Elena will use this loan to increase her working capital (for buying vicuna wool). She will buy the wool in 16 de Julio, turn it into thread and sell it at local markets. The business generates an income that helps to support her family. She is married and has two children.

When we asked her what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answered that she likes the loans.

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.
