The “TAKESHI” community bank are about to start their first loan cycle as part of the Santiago II regional office. The group has eight members and Susana is their president. The ladies' business activities are varied and include: buying and selling hosepipes, selling CDs, selling cleaning supplies, selling beer, running a neighborhood store and selling ladies' clothing.

Susana tells us that she has been a member of a Pro Mujer community bank for ten years. She was invited to join by a fellow member. Susana's business is selling beer and she has been in it for a number of years, having learned from her older sister.

The loan that Susana is taking out will be used to increase her capital (buying beer). She will buy her goods from distributors and then sell them during local fiestas. This work enables her to support her family. Susana is married and has six children.

When we asked her what she likes about Pro Mujer, Susana replied that she likes the training and the health services.

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.
