The "Bienvenida" communal bank will begin its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer, through the Panamericana regional office. It is made up of seven members, and is led by a board, of which Nelly is the secretary.

The businesses that the members of the communal bank carry on are varied, and include: weaving vicuña shawls, knitting sweaters, selling meat, selling vegetables, selling sweaters, and selling baby clothing.

The loan they will take will benefit small business owners such as Nelly. She says this is her first loan cycle as a member of Pro Mujer. She joined at the invitation of a field advisor of the institution, who came to visit her at her home. Currently she has a business selling vegetables. She says that this business was her mother's 64 years ago, and she continues to run it as a livelihood.

The loan she will now take out is for increasing her working capital through buying vegetables, which she will acquire from the wholesale merchants and later sell at her stall. This form of work allows her to generate financial resources for her family, as she is single and has a son.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health education.

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.
