The “Amanecer” (Dawn) communal bank will start its third cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Achacachi Focal Center. It has 8 members led by a governing board that has Justina as its president. The communal bank members carry out a variety of businesses among which we have: ice-cream making, cheese sales, 'chuño' [dehydrated potato] production, potato production and a variety store.

Justina indicates that she’s been part of Pro Mujer for two years having joined thanks to a promotional campaign in her area. She currently has a business making and selling ice-cream. She relates that many years ago she used to sell ice-cream in the city of La Paz and the owner of that business taught her how to make these products so when she returned to her community she started her own business.

The loan she’s requesting now is to increase raw materials. She’ll buy spices in the street markets in the city of El Alto and once the items are made she’ll sell them in her local street markets. This way of working makes it possible for her to generate resources to support her family the best way possible since she’s married and has four children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that Pro Mujer isn’t very demanding with respect to loan collateral.

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.
