The Communal Bank "Intocables" is starting its first loan cycle as part of the Santiago II Community Center. This group consists of six members and Sra. Josefa serves as the treasurer. The members have developed business activities that include selling food, selling clothes, serving coffee, and other ventures.

Sra. Josefa joined a Communal Bank with Pro Mujer one year ago after receiving an invitation from one of her other group members. She currently has a business of selling natural medicines. Josefa learned this trade from her parents and has been working for several years. The loan she is receiving now will be used to increase her capital for buying natural medicines, which will be purchased from the people who make them and then sold from her established vending post. Working in this manner helps to move her family forward. Josefa is single and has two children.

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.
