The “Villa Ancora” communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Senkata Center. It has ten members led by a governing board headed by Agripina. The businesses the members of the communal bank operate are varied. Among them we have: commerce, production and services.

Agripina indicates that this is the first cycle she’s worked with Pro Mujer having joined thanks to an invitation from a promoter. At present she has a crafts business weaving and raising animals that she’s been operating for a year now. She started the business taking advantage of raising alpacas and llamas that she’s done since she was a little girl.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital (to buy alpaca wool) which she’ll buy from the factory and then make items based on orders. This way of working allows her to generate income to support her family since she has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she answers that she likes the health clinic and the savings.

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.
