The "CHAVELAS" communal bank will begin their second loan with Pro Mujer, as part of the Collpani Regional Hub. The group is made up of nine members and led by a management board with Rose Mary as the President.

The businesses that the members of the communal bank carry out are varied. Among them are: plaster handicraft, selling frescos, blanket knitting and selling juice, selling used-clothing, a video shop, selling coffee and food, a bookshop and a stationary shop.

The loan they receive will benefit small micro-businesswomen where Rose Mary is a member. She says that she has been a member of Pro Mujer for three years, joining by invitation from her mother who is an associate of the institution. At present she has a business producing plaster handicraft; she says that she learnt this business from her mother, who also relies on this same business. Subsequently with a loan from our institution's Pro Mujer, she created her own business.

The loan that she will now take out is for the increase of capital (buying stucco) that she will acquire from the distributors and the subsequent production. She will sell it in the traditional exhibition at the artisan fair. This form of work allows her to generate resources to maintain her home as much as possible, as she is married. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replied that she likes the health and loan training.

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.
