The "Aguilas del Sur" ("Eagles of the South") communal bank will begin its 5th loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the institution's regional office in Los Andes. It is comprised of nine members and it's headed by a board of directors presided by Justina. The members of the communal bank conduct various businesses such as selling clothing, owning a neighborhood sales stand, selling crafts, cosmetics, providing carwash services, selling jewelry and providing internet services.
The loan they received will benefit the various lines of work of the small business owners, one of whom is Justina. She reports that she has been with Pro Mujer for the past two years. She joined by invitation from a friend who's a member of the institution. She currently owns a butcher shop. She says that it was a family business and when she got married she decided to become independent.
The loan she will receive now will be used to increase her working capital by purchasing meat. She'll buy it from the butchers of the town of El Alto and then sell it in her shop. This line of work allows her to obtain earnings in order to support her household as much as she can, since she's married and has three children.
When she's asked about what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she enjoys the health and credit trainings.

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.
