The “Las Vecinas de Humachua” communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Adela Focal Center. It has 10 members led by a governing board presided by Teodora. The communal bank members have a variety of business among which are found: grocery sales, sewing, fruit sales, vegetables sales, beer sales, neighborhood store and crafts.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit small micro businesswomen one of which is Teodora. She indicates that this is the first time she’s been part of Pro Mujer having been invited to join by one of the institution’s promoters who visited her at home. She currently has a business sewing shirts and blankets. She relates that she learned this business from her parents years ago and decided to set up her own workshop.

The loan she’ll take out is to increase capital. She’ll buy fabric in wholesale stores and sell what she makes in her sales stand. This way of working allows her to generate income to support her home the best way possible since she’s single and has three children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health service.

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.
