Mañaneras Communal Bank will begin its fourth loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Collpani regional office. It's made up of eight members governed by a board of directors of which Claudina is the treasurer. The members of the communal bank carry out a variety of businesses, including seasoning sales, clothing sales, grocery sales, gelatin sales, vegetable sales, and food sales.

The loan they'll get will benefit small businesswomen such as Claudina. She says she has been a member of Pro Mujer for two years, joining on the invitation of an advisor from the institution who visited her at her house. Currently she has a business selling crafts (textiles), which she set up several years ago on her own initiative.

The loan she's getting now is to increase her capital to buy wool, which she'll acquire at the street markets in the city of El Alto. After production, she'll sell in her sales stall.

This form of work allows her to generate income to support her household as much as possible because she's married and has five children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she says the health training and the loans.

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.
