The communal bank ‘Chicas de Azucar’ will start their first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the regional office in Villa Adela. It is made up of 9 members and has a board of directors at the head, where you will find Jenny. The work that the members of the community bank carry out is quite varied. Among them we have a blanket weaver, camera repairs, the sale of oil cans, a maker of braided blankets, a shop selling gaiters, the sale of aerials, a glove maker, the stitching of sneakers and food sales.

Jenny points out that she became part of a communal bank with this loan. She currently has a microelectronics workshop, which she has been working in for years, learning it from her family. This loan is to increase her merchandise (purchase of electronic parts) which she buys in the markets in La Paz, and subsequently will market it in her repair shop. This way of working allows her to support her family, as she lives with her partner and has two children.

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

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.
