The “Abejitas de Tilata” (Tilata Little Bees) communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Adela Focal Center. It has 8 members led by a governing board headed by Miriam, President. The communal bank members are in a variety of businesses among which we have: salchipapa [fried sausage and fried potatoes] sales, beer sales, baby clothes sales, Chilean backpack sales, chicken sales, candy sales, fabric sales and sale of recyclables.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit the small micro businesswomen of which Miriam is one. She indicates that she’s been in Pro Mujer for three years having joined thanks to an invitation from one of the institution’s promoters who visited her at home. She currently has a business selling candy, a business she got from her mother fifteen years ago since it had been a family business.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital. She will buy candy in street markets in the city of El Alto to then resell in her sales stand. This way of working allows her to generate income needed to support her family the best way possible since she lives in a common law relationship and has two children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health services.

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.
