The “Agua Dulce” (Sweet Water) communal bank will start its 11th cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Juan Pablo Focal Center. It has 7 members led by a governing board headed by Vicencia. The members of the communal bank have a variety of businesses. Among them we have: backpack making, alpaca and vicuña crafts, cheese sales, vegetables sales, blanket sales, food sales on credit and potato sales.

Vicencia indicates that she’s been a member of a Pro Mujer communal bank for a year having been invited to join by her fellow members. She currently has a blanket weaving business that she’s had for years; she learned this activity from her mother-in-law.

The loan she’ll take out now is to buy wool yarn that she’ll get in the city of El Alto’s street markets and after making them will sell them in her sales space. This business helps her support her family since she has a spouse and a son.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the meetings and the health services.

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.
