The Communal Bank “Sabrositas” is starting its 12th loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Germán Busch Community Center. This group consists of 11 members and is led by a Board of Directors headed by Sra. Miriam. The members of this Communal Bank engage in different businesses in order to get ahead such as selling spare parts, bricklaying, selling flowers, selling vegetables, selling cough lozenges, selling American clothes, managing a boarding house, selling blankets, and operating a diner.

Sra. Miriam says that she joined a Communal Bank and Pro Mujer six months ago after receiving an invitation from another group member. She currently has a business selling food and has been working for five months. Miriam learned this trade from her mother.

The loan she is receiving now will be used to increase her capital so that she can buy noodles, rice, oil, and other products. She buys her supplies in La Ceja and then prepares and sells her dishes from her shop. Working in this manner enables her to generate income to support her family as much as possible. Miriam is single.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Miriam says she enjoys the health services at the clinic.

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.
