The “BLANCA NIEVES” Communal Bank will initiate its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of its Santiago II central office. It is composed of eleven members under a board of directors led by Sra. Tomasa. The businesses of the bank’s members are varied: among them we have a variety of woven goods, the sale of chicharrónes (pork rinds), the sale of sweets, public transportation, pants making, knitted sweaters, cattle sales, perfume sales, wallet sales and pastry sales.

Sra. Tomasa notes that this is her first time working with Pro Mujer and that she joined the institution at the invitation of her brother-in-law. Currently she has a knitted goods business that she has been working at for some time.

The loan she is requesting is to expand her capital to buy wool which she will acquire wholesale from La Ceja and later knit and sell at her sales stall. This kind of work enables her to generate earnings to support her family since she lives with her partner and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she enjoys the training.

In the photo Sra. Yhovana is missing because she had to see a doctor.

La señora Tomasa, indica que es la primera vez que trabaja en Pro Mujer y que integro la institución por invitación de su cuñado. En la actualidad ella tiene un negocio de tejidos que viene trabajando hace algún tiempo.

El crédito que ahora sacará es para aumentar su capital (compra de lanas) que adquirirá de la Ceja, por mayor, y posteriormente a la elaboración comercializará en puesto de venta. Esta forma de trabajo le permite generar recursos para apoyar a su familia, pues ella vive en concubinato y tiene tres hijos.

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

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.
