The communal bank "Heroes del Chaco" will begin its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer through the Panamericana regional center. The group is composed of eight members and is directed by an executive board where Señora Esperanza is the secretary. The businesses of the members of the communal bank are varied; among them, we have neighborhood shops, weaving shawls, brickwork assistant, sewing sheepskin jackets, selling tostados, selling coca and fruit.

Señora Esperanza indicates that this is the first time she has worked with Pro Mujer and that she joined the institution through a promotional invitation. At the present time she has a sewing business that she has been working in for years. The loan that she is taking out now is to increase her capital (buy fabric), which she buys from the 16 de Julio market. She makes her products on order and sells them. This form of work allows her to generate income to help her family, since she is married and has two children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the training.

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.
