The “Amigas de Bellavista” Communal Bank will start its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de Cascada. It is made up of nine members and led by an executive board where Sra. Margarita is the president. The businesses that the members of the bank are successfully running are varied; among them we have sales of pastries, tucumanas (turnovers), salchipapas (a sausage and potatoes dish), milk, gold and silver jewelry, hardware and the production of sportswear. The loan they will take out will benefit their small businesses

Sra. Margarita states that this is the first time she has joined Pro Mujer and that she joined by invitation of a friend who is already a member. Currently she has a business selling tucumanas. She notes that she began in the business as a child with her mother, who is engaged in the same activity. Later, Margarita decided to start a business on her own.

The loan that she will take out is to increase the capital (to buy vegetables and flour) she will acquire from sellers by buying wholesale and later by making and selling her food to military units. This kind of work enables her to generate an income to support her family since she is a single mother with two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she enjoys the workshops on health and finance.

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.
