The A.C. “PRIMICIAS” will begin its 5th cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the communal bank Centro Focal Santiago II. It consists of 9 members and is lead by a board headed by Señora Elisabet. The members of the communal bank run various businesses such as: selling cosmetics selling cookies, selling candy, selling toys, selling potatoes, selling coca, selling soups, running a sewing and tailoring workshop .

Señora Elizabet says that this is the second year that she works with Pro Mujer, being invited to join by a promoter. She has been running a business selling coca for many years now, a business she learned from her aunt.

The loan she is currently obtaining will be used to increase her capital to buy coca which she will purchase at Villa Fatima and later sell in her shop. This kind of work allows her, as she is single, to generate an income to support her family wherever possible.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the training and the health care institute.

Señora Dora does not appear in the photo due to cultural constraints.

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.
