The Veleros Communal Bank will begin its first recruitment in Pro Mujer, as part of the Los Andes regional office. There are eight members directed by a board headed by Julia. The members of the communal bank work in a variety of businesses, among which we have a beauty salon, milk sales, crafts, potato sales, clothing sales on credit, lamb sales, and florists.

Julia indicates that she has been working with Pro Mujer for a year and six months and that she joined the institution on the invitation of the loan consultants. Currently she has a business selling livestock that she has been doing for some time, having learned it from her parents.

The loan she will get now is to increase her capital to buy livestock that she will acquire from the provinces and later sell in her stall. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family, since she is married and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes everything.

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.
