The Communal Bank “Rayos del Sol” (Rays of Sun) is starting its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Juan Pablo Center. This group consists of eight members and is led by a Board of Directors headed by Sra. Julia. The members of this Communal Bank engage in various businesses in order to get ahead such as manufacturing shoes, selling wool, managing a neighborhood store, selling undergarments, managing a locksmith shop, selling ice cream, selling kerosene, and making braided shawls.


Sra. Julia says that she joined Pro Mujer six months ago after receiving an invitation from a friend. She currently has a business that makes braided shawls. Julia has worked in this business for several years and has the help of her friend.


The loan she is receiving now will be used to increase her inventory by purchasing wool. She acquires her supplies in El Alto and then produces the goods that she will sell based on her orders. Working in this manner enables her to generate income to support her family as much as possible. Julia is married and has two children.


When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Julia said that she enjoys the health services.

La señora Julia indica que hace seis meses que integra Pro Mujer por invitación de una amiga. En la actualidad ella tiene un negocio de trenzado de mantas que viene trabajando hace años atrás por el apoyo de su amiga.

El crédito que ahora sacará es para aumentar su mercadería (compra de lana), que adquirirá de El Alto y posterior a la elaboración lo comercializara a pedido. Esta forma de trabajo le permite generar recursos para apoyar en lo posible a su familia, pues ella es casada y tiene dos hijos.

Cuando se le consulta qué le gusta de Pro Mujer, ella responde que le gusta la atención en 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.
