The "Claveles" communal bank will begin its eighth cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Senkata Center. It is made up of eight members and is directed by a board headed by Daria. The members of the communal bank have a variety of businesses. Among them we have: furniture sales, knitting blankets, selling fruit, selling vegetables, selling food, and selling legía [an alkaloid used when chewing coca to draw out the active ingredient in the leaf].

Daria says the she has worked with Pro Mujer for a long time, joining at the invitation of a representative. Currently she has a business selling furniture, which she has been working at for years.

The loan that she will now receive is to increase her capital (purchase of wood), which she will buy at the markets of El Alto. After making the furniture, she will sell it at her stand. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family as much as possible. She lives 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 training area.

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.
