The “HUAYNA POTOSI” communal bank will begin its third cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Panamericana center. The group is made up of ten members and directed by a board of directors. Maxima serves as the president. The members have different businesses, including promotional product sales, bread sales, food sales, snack sales, awayo knitting, meat, potatoes, and chuño.

This loan will help their small businesses, including Maxima’s. She has been with Pro Mujer for two cycles and joined on the invitation of a promoter who visited her in her home. She sells cattle and started this business a few years ago on her parent’s recommendation.

She will use the money from this loan to buy livestock in the provincial fairs and sell it on order. This work will allow her to generate income to support her household. She is in a common law marriage and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the training in health and financing.

Venancia is not shown in the photograph because she had to go to the doctor.

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.
