The communal bank “2 DE FEBRERO” [2 OF FEBRUARY] is beginning its third loan cycle with Pro Mujer through the regional office of Senkata. The communal bank is made up of six members and is directed by a board of directors, of which Ana María is president. The businesses of the members are varied and include weaving jackets, selling blankets, selling potatoes and potato flour, a butcher’s stall, traditional skirts and shawls, and selling condiments.

The loan they are requesting will benefit small businesses in which Ana María is a participant. She says she joined Pro Mujer eight months ago at the invitation of the members of her group, who are members of the institution. Currently, she has a business selling condiments (seasonings, herbs, spices). She says that she learned this business from her mother, whom she helped with sales. Later she decided to open her own, independent business.

Ana María will use this loan to increase her capital by buying condiments wholesale in the markets of the city of El Alto. She will later sell the condiments as a travelling vendor (without a fixed sales stall). This form of work allows her to generate resources to support herself, as she is single and lives with her parents. When she is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the training relating to health.

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.
