The "San Pedro de Huatajata" communal bank is starting its second loan cycle through the Copacabana regional office. It is made up of ten members and Gaby is the treasurer.

The group members carry on a variety of businesses, including selling vegetables, selling fish, buying and selling meat, selling cheese, hauling, and selling jerky.

Gaby tells us that she has belonged to a communal bank in Pro Mujer for a half a year, and that she was invited to do this by the field worker.

Currently she has a business selling vegetables, that she has been working in for several years, having learned it from her family.

The loan she will be getting now is to diversify her business through the purchase of jerky, which she will buy at the local markets, and then sell at her stall.

Working in this way will help her keep going, as she is single.

When we asked her what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answered that she likes saving money.

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.
