The “Villa Ingavi” communal bank will start its 18th cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Germán Busch Focal Center. It has 8 members and they have a governing board led by Virginia. The members of the communal bank carry out a variety of businesses among which we have sale of bedspreads, metal work, clothes sales, meat sales, stocking sales and fruit sales.

Virginia indicates that she’s been part of a communal bank for a year having been invited to join by a member. She currently has a business selling containers; she’s had it for years. The loan this cycle is to expand her merchandise. She will buy containers in the city of El Alto and then resell them in street markets. This way of working allows her to support her family since she’s married and has five children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes sharing in the group.

Irma does not appear in the photo because she had a doctor’s appointment.

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.
