The communal bank "FLOR BLANCA" will begin its first cycle in the Pro Mujer program at the Social Center in Alto Lima. It is comprised of ten members and led by a board of directors with Lidia as its president. The members of the communal bank have different businesses, including knitting baby clothes, making wool blankets,running a butcher shop, softdrinks and sweets store, vicuña wool spinning, sales of hotdogs and food.

The loan they are requesting will help the small business owners, including Lidia. She says she joined Pro Mujer together with her aunt by invitation from a person working at the institution. She currently has a business weaving and selling blankets. She tells us she learned the trade from an aunt who made blankets; and then she took training at an institution to improve her technique and get started in business.

The loan is to expand her business by buying a broaster machine which she will buy from distributors and set up in her shop. These two sources of income will allow her to support her family as best she can. She is single and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that it is the savings part.

Rosmery and Paula are not shown in the photograph because they had doctors' appointments.

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.
