The Communal Bank “Flor de Papa” (Potato Flower) is starting its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Exaltación Community Center. This group consists of six members and is led by a Board of Directors headed by Sra. Venancia as the president. The members of this Communal Bank engage in various businesses such as making purses, selling potatoes, selling food, weaving blankets, and producing bread.


This loan will benefit small entrepreneurs such as Sra. Venancia. She says that she joined Pro Mujer one year ago after receiving an invitation from a promoter who came to her house. At the moment, Venancia has a cattle business that she has managed for several years. This is a family business where she continues to work.


The loan she is receiving now will be used to increase her capital for buying cattle. She will purchase the animals from individuals who come to her home to sell them. Venancia will then raise these animals until they are ready to be sold. Working in this manner enables her to generate income to support her family as much as possible. Venancia is married and has two children.


When asked what she enjoys about Pro Mujer, Venancia said that she likes the loans.

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.
