The "Brillantes Estrellas" communal bank is starting its third loan cycle in the Andes regional office. Ten members participate in this communal bank, where Dolores is the president. The women have various businesses in trade, production, and services such as braiding blankets, selling sweaters, selling fruit, managing a grocery store, selling vegetables, and making sportswear.

Dolores is a 41-year-old single mother with three children. She joined the communal bank twelve years ago and since then has been working in the grocery store business. The loan she will take out is to increase her merchandise by buying groceries that she will purchase from the city of El Alto. She will market it in her sales space every day.

When we asked her what she likes the most about Pro Mujer, she said that she likes the simple loans and that the training is useful.

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.
