The “Heart Breakers” Communal Bank has begun its 1st loan cycle with our “Santiago II” Central Office. The bank is composed of 6 members with Nilsa as president. The group is involved in distinct activities, including making shoes, selling cosmetics, roasting chicken, selling beer, operating a juice vending store, and selling perfumes.

Nilsa tells us that this is the 1st time she has joined a communal bank within Pro-Mujer. She was invited to join by one of her companions. At present, she sells shoes at a business she has operated for several years, using skills learned from her friends.

The loan she is requesting will provide capital for buying shoes at the fairs in La Paz, then she will sell them in her market stall. This type of work helps her advance her family, since she lives with her common law husband and has 3 children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replied “the life insurance and the medical 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.
