The “CANELITAS DE SAN ANTONIO” communal bank will begin its first cycle in Pro Mujer as a part of the Senkata center. It is made up of nine members and led by a board of directors headed by Aurora. The businesses that the members of the communal bank run are: growing potatoes, selling potato flour, raising animals, running a neighborhood store, and running a weaving workshop.

Aurora indicates that this is the first cycle that she has worked with Pro Mujer. She was invited by developer and by the group members. At present she has a business raising cattle and growing potatoes. She has done this since she was a child, and learned the trade from her parents.

The loan that she will take out now is to increase her capital (buy farm animals and potato seed). She will buy in her community and later sell in the markets. This work enables her to generate income to support her family as much as possible. She is married and has five children.

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.
