The Communal Bank "San Javier de Sanca Jahuira" is starting its second loan cycle as part of the Copacabana Community Center. This group consists of 13 members and is led by Sra. Yola as its president. The members have developed business activities that include selling fish, selling jackets, selling vegetables, managing a neighborhood store, and providing transportation.


Sra. Yola joined a Communal Bank with Pro Mujer six months ago after receiving an invitation from a promoter. She currently manages a neighborhood store and has been in this line of work for several years. The loan she is receiving now will be used to increase her capital for buying sugar, rice, and oil. These items will be purchased at the traditional fairs in El Alto and later sold at her retail shop. Working in this manner helps her family get ahead. Yola is single and has two children.


When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Yola said that she enjoys the savings. In the photo, there is one member who is hidden and only part of her head can be seen. This member is Sra. Haidy, who is fearful of the camera, but she did not want to be separated from the group.

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.
