The Communal Bank “Luceritos de Panamericana” (Little Lights of Panamericana) is starting its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Panamericana Community Center. This group consists of eight members and is led by a Board of Directors headed by Sra. Felisa as its president. The members of this Communal Bank engage in various businesses such as selling clothes, selling “salchipapas” (sausages and potatoes), selling hygiene products, sewing articles of clothing, producing handmade scarves and blankets, selling groceries, providing minibus services, managing a foundry and lathe shop, and selling fruit and fish.


This loan will benefit small businesswomen, such as Sra. Felisa, who is one of the members. She says that she joined Pro Mujer two years ago after receiving an invitation from her sister, who is also a member of the organization. Felisa currently operates a business where she sells “salchipapas”. She learned this trade years ago from her sister, who also sells this product.


The loan she is receiving now will be used to increase her capital for buying ingredients. Felisa acquires her supplies at the fairs in the city of El Alto and then prepares the food that she sells at her vending stall. Working in this manner enables her to generate income so that she can support her household. Felisa is married and has five children.


When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Felisa said that she enjoys the training classes about health and 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.
