The communal bank "Promesa" will start its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer, working out of the Germán Busch central office. This group has 7 members, and is led by a board of directors headed by Eva. The members of this communal bank have a variety of businesses, such as: a grocery store, selling furniture, knitting caps, selling children's books, knitting blankets, selling clothing, and making and selling rattles.

Eva says that this is the first time that she has worked with Pro Mujer. She joined the institution at the invitation of a loan officer. She currently has a business buying and selling used furniture. She's been doing this work for years, and she learned the trade from her friend.

The loan that she will take now will be used to increase her capital, so that she can buy furniture in La Paz, and later sell it in the markets. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family. She is married and has 4 children.

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.
