The Granito de Oro communal bank will start their second cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de Senkata. It is comprised of eight members, and it is led by a board of directors. María Eugenia is the treasurer. The communal bank members carry out a variety of businesses. Among them we have: selling blankets, weaving blankets, selling candy, soup and others, making ‘polleras’ (traditional skirts), weaving 'awayos' (traditional cloths), cleaning, and selling food.

The loan they take will help small businesswomen where María Eugenia is a member. She says she has been a member of Pro Mujer for five years, joining by invitation from her friends. She currently has a used shoe business. She set up this business upon seeing her relatives sell used clothes.

The loan she will now take is to increase capital (to buy shoes). She will get the shoes wholesale in the city of Oruro. She will later sell them at her sales location. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support, as much as possible, her household. She is in a common-law marriage and has four children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she said that the likes the training about health and savings.

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.
