The Communal Bank “Las Pecadoras de Bautista Saavedra” is starting its seventh loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Collpani Community Center. This group consists of seven members and is led by a Board of Direfctors in which Sra. Victoria serves as the treasurer. The members of this Communal Bank engage in different businesses such as selling regular and dried potatoes, weaving, managing a neighborhood store, producing woven items with the use of a loom, producing and selling “awayos” (traditional Bolivian fabrics), and weaving blankets.


This loan will benefit small micro-entrepreneurs who work in different trades, such as Sra. Victoria. She says that this is the first time she has joined a group with Pro Mujer after receiving an invitation from a friend who is also a member of the organization. Victoria currently manages two weaving businesses that she established with her husband, who previously worked in this trade.


The loan she is receiving now will increase her capital for buying wool. She acquires her supplies from distribution companies in the city of El Alto and then produces her goods at her retail space. Working in this manner enables her to generate income to support her household. Victoria is married and has three children.


When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Victoria said that she enjoys the training seminars that focus on health issues and credit. In the background of the photo, the woman wearing a light-blue shawl is Sra. Severina’s cousin who is posing with the rest of the group.

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.
