The “Alegrías” communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Adela Center. It has nine members led by a governing board headed by Sofía. The members of the communal bank carry out a variety of businesses. Among them we have fruit smoothie sales, neighborhood store, cheese sales, food sales, grocery sales, backpack sales, bricklayer helper and fruit sales.

Sofía indicates that this is the first cycle she’s worked with Pro Mujer having joined thanks to an invitation from a promoter. She has a neighborhood store that she’s been operating for a year having learned this line of work from her cousin.

The loan she’ll take out is to increase capital. She will buy noodles, rice, sugar etc. in the markets and then resell in her store. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her family in the best way possible since she’s in a common law relationship and has three children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health services.

Juana does not appear in the photo because she was at a medical appointment.

La A.C. “ALEGRIAS” iniciará su primer ciclo en Pro Mujer, como parte del Centro de Villa Adela, está compuesta por nueve integrantes y está dirigida por una mesa directiva encabezada por la señora Sofía. Los negocios que las integrantes de la asociación comunal llevan adelante son variados entre ellos tenemos: venta de frescos, tienda de barrio, venta de queso, venta de comida, venta de abarrotes, venta de mochilas, ayudante de albañil, venta de fruta.

La señora Sofía indica que este es el primer ciclo que trabaja con Pro Mujer, ingresando por invitación de una promotora. En la actualidad ella tiene un negocio de tienda de barrio que viene trabajando hace un año atrás, aprendiendo este oficio de su prima.

El crédito que ahora sacará es para aumentar su capital (compra fideo, arroz, azúcar, etc.) que comprará de las ferias y posteriormente lo comercializará en su tienda. Esta forma de trabajo le permite generar recursos para apoyar en lo posible a su familia pues ella vive en unión libre y tiene tres hijos.

Cuando se le consulta qué le gusta de Pro Mujer, ella responde que le gusta el area de salud.

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.
