The communal bank "Villa Anta" will begin its fifth loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the "Los Andes" regional office. It is composed of eight members and is directed by a board of directors headed by Señora Nora. The businesses which the members of the communal bank run are varied; among them we have selling Maltin (a nonalcoholic malt-based beverage), weaving rugs, selling food, making balls, selling salteñas (baked empanadas), selling ice cream, and selling strawberries.

Señora Nora indicates that she has worked with Pro Mujer for a number of cycles and that she joined the institution through the invitation of a loan officer. Now she has a business where she sells rugs, in which she has been working for years, having learned the business from her parents.

The loan that she will take out now will be used to increase her capital (buy rugs), which she will acquire from El Alto and later sell at her sales stall. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family, since she is in a common-law marriage and has two children.

When she is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the health center.

Señora Francisca was not present in the photograph for cultural reasons.

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.
