The Communal Bank "Ama Chuma" will begin its first cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Alto Lima Regional Office. It is made up of seven members and lead by a board of directors in which Marleny is President. The businesses that the members of the communal bank carry forward are varied. Among them we have cosmetics sales, salchipapa sales-a hot dog dish with fried potatoes, undergarment sales, toy sales, quilt sewing and sale of children's clothing.

Marleny indicates that is the first time that Pro Mujer is working with them, entering by an invitation of a promoter that went to her house. Currently she has a business selling clothing. She says that she began this business by the recommendation of her grandmother, many years ago because she used to bring bundles of American clothing from Oruro department.

The loan that she will take out is to increase her capital (to buy clothing), which she will buy in the large markets and then sell in communities of the Caranavi municipality. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family as possible. She is in a civil union partnership and has six children.

When she is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the health sector.

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.
