The "Ovejas Blancas" communal bank will begin its first loan cycle at Pro Mujer, through the Santiago II regional office. It is made up of seven members, with a board of directors headed by Daniela.

The members of the communal bank carry on a variety of businesses selling such things as stationery, lambs, sandals and sport shoes, humintas (baked corn tamales), groceries, and gift items.

Daniela says that this is the first time she has been part of a communal bank, and that currently she has a general store business that she has been working in for years.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health clinic.

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.
