The Communal Bank, "Las Leonas" will begin its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer. As part of the Andes regional office, it is made up of 7 members and lead by a board in which Gregoria is president. The businesses that the members of the communal bank lead forward are several. Among those we have, food sales, underwear sales, neighborhood store, grocery store and blanket store.

Gregoria indicates that she has been a member of Pro Mujer for eight years, entering by invitation from a promoter of the institution. Currently she has a business selling blankets. She says that she began this business by first learning the weaving trade from her mother and then starting up the business.

The loan that she is now receiving is to expand her merchandise (buying wool), which she will get from the stores in the city of El Alto and then will sell in her place of sale. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family as she can, as she is married and has five children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the health aspect.

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.
