The “Chulumani” communal bank will start its 30th cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Los Andes Focal Center. It has 10 members led by a governing board headed by Ana. The communal bank members carry out a variety of businesses among which we have: sale of domestic animals, neighborhood store, knitting sweaters, book sales, blanket sales, food sales, knitting baby caps, milk and cheese sales, shoe sales and sale of little caps.

Ana indicates that she’s been a member of a Pro Mujer communal association for six years having been invited to join by a fellow member. She currently has a sewing workshop where she knits sweaters; she’s had it for years.

The loan she’ll take out now is to buy merchandise like wool yarn that she’ll use to make the items. She tells us that she works at her business every day and sells in the city of El Alto’s street markets. This business helps her support her family since she’s married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health training, the loans and the health monitoring.

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.
