The communal bank “FENIX” started its first cycle in Pro Mujer in the Juan Pablo neighborhood center. It has nine members and is run by a board led by Monica.
The members have various types of businesses such as:crocheting lingerie, knitting jackets, knitting sweaters, selling salteñas (meat filled pastries), making sweaters, selling detergents, cheese, clothing, salchipapa (fried meat and potatoes), and mobile phones.

Monica says she started the communal association in Pro Mujer a year ago by inviting her friends. She now has a business making and selling salteñas and tucumanas (meat filled pastries) that her parents taught her and she has done for years.

She will use the loan to buy flour, and basic ingredients to make the food: after she prepares it, she will market it where she sells. The business will help her support her family since she lives with her partner and they have a son.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the training in health and finances.

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.
