The “COOPERATIVA” communal bank will start the sixth loan cycle in Pro Mujer, as the Panamericana Regional Hub. It is made up of eight members and is run by a governing board where Jacinta is the President. The businesses that the members of the communal bank carry out are varied, among which: sale of fruits, sale of cords and twines, sale of sportswear, plaiting of blankets, sale of rope, blanket handicrafts and an Internet store.

The loan will serve to benefit the micro entrepreneurs where Jacinta is a member. Jacinta says that she entered Pro Mujer two years ago at the invitation of an institute promoter who visited her at her home. She currently has a business sewing hats, and she recounts how she started it many years ago, learning the trade from her husband who worked in this business, and to expand it, she decided to participate too.

The loan which she will now obtain is to increase capital (to buy leather) which she will procure from wholesalers and subsequently sell the manufactured goods in her sales space. This manner of working enables her to generate resources to support her family as far as possible as she is married and has two girls.

When asked what it is she likes about Pro Mujer, Jacinta answers that she likes the savings.

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.
