The “Chojña Pampita” communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Copacabana Focal Center. It has 8 members led by a governing board presided by Wilma. The communal bank members carry out a variety of activities among which are: blanket weaving, blanket sales to order, soft-drink sales and grocery store.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit small micro businesswomen one of which is Wilma. She indicates that this is the first time she’s joined Pro Mujer having been invited to do so by one of the institution’s promoters who went to visit her at home. She currently has a blanket weaving business. She relates that she learned the business by working in a weaving workshop and eventually decided to start her own workshop.

The present loan will be to increase her capital. She will buy fabric in wholesale stores and then sell what she makes to stores on order. This way of working allows her to generate income to support her home the best way possible since she’s married and has four children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health services.

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.
