The “Frutillitas” communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Exaltación Focal Center. It has 7 members led by a governing board headed by Lidia, the president. The communal bank members carry out a variety of businesses among which we have: restaurant, clothing sales, macramé weaving and sweater knitting.

The loan they will take out will benefit small micro businesses. Lidia is one of the members. She indicates that she’s been part of Pro Mujer for a year having been invited to join by a girlfriend who is a member of the institution. She currently has a business selling food (restaurant) that she learned through a suggestion from her sister because she makes very tasty dishes.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital (to purchase cereals and vegetables). She will buy them in traditional street markets in La Paz and then use them to prepare food that she’ll then sell in her food stand with help from her daughter and sister-in-law. This way of working allows her to earn resources to support her family in the best way possible since she’s married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health training and the credit.

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.
