The “Ballivian” communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Cascada center; it has 8 members led by a governing board where Constancia is the Treasurer. The members of the communal bank carry out a variety of businesses among which we have: macramé blanket weaving, neighborhood grocery store, soft-drinks store, sweater knitting, and telephone call center.

Constancia indicates that this is the first time she works with Pro Mujer having joined thanks to an invitation from one of the promoters. She has had a business selling blankets for the last twelve years having learned it from her aunt.

The loan she’s asking for now is to increase her capital. She will buy wool in La Ceja and once processed will sell it in her stand. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her family in whatever way possible since she’s married and has two children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answer that she likes the good health services.

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.
