Chiquitas de Cascada Communal Bank will start its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Cascada regional office. It is made up of nine members governed by a board of directors of which Rosa is the president. The varied businesses that the members of the communal bank carry out include wool handicrafts, a bakery, woven handicrafts, macrame, food sales, vegetable sales, and an auto body shop.

The loan they are going to get will benefit small micro-businesses of which Rosa is a member. She points out that she has been with Pro Mujer for a year, joining on the invitation of a family member who is a member of the institution. Currently she has a business selling vegetables that she started five years ago with her mother.

The loan she will get is to expand her capital buying vegetables, which she will buy at the markets in the city of La Paz and later sell in the markets in El Alto, in her stalls. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family as much as possible, because she is single and has a daughter.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes to be with her colleagues.

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.
