Radio San Gabriel Communal Bank will start its sixth cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Germán Busch Regional Office. It's made up of eight members and headed by a board of which Paulina is the director. The diverse business of the members of the communal bank include making vicuña blankets, making bags, weaving leggings, neighborhood store, spinning, bookstore and photocopying, and making cracklings.

The loan they're getting will benefit a group of small business entrepreneurs to which Paulina belongs. She says she joined Pro Mujer three years ago on the invitation of a facilitator who visited her at home. Currently she has a business making blankets. She says she started this business three years ago with her family and later decided to work on her own.

The loan she's getting now is to increase her capital buying wool, which she'll get from distribution companies. After production, she'll sell in the markets in the city of El Alto. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family, because she's married and has a child.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she says she likes sharing with her colleagues.

Sofía isn't in the photograph because she had a doctor's appointment.

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.
