The “Yeshua” communal bank will start its second cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Juan Pablo Focal Center. It has 8 members led by a governing board headed by Guillermina, the President. The communal bank members carry out a variety of commercial activities among which we have the sale of stuffed toys, sweater knitting, apron making and selling, metal shop services, neighborhood store, sewing, sale of turnovers and noodle soup and brick making.

Guillermina indicates that she’s been a member of Pro Mujer for four years having joined thanks to an invitation from a girlfriend who’s a member of the institution. She currently has a brick-making business. She relates that she started the business after having worked in a brick factory for several years.

The loan she’s asking for now is to expand her merchandise. She will buy bricks from suppliers in the city of El Alto and then will resell them from place to place (she has no permanent stand). She sells to owners of building sites. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her family as much as possible since she’s separated and has two children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the savings.

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.
