The “Las Heroinas del Gas” communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Panamericana Focal Center. It has 8 members led by a governing board presided over by Marcelina. The members carry out a variety of businesses among which are blanket weaving, machine knitting, sweater knitting, easy chair sales and blender sales.

The loan they are seeking will benefit small micro businesswomen like Marcelina. She indicates that this is the first time she’s joined Pro Mujer having been invited to join by one of the institution’s promoters who visited her at home. She currently has a business selling electric appliances. She states that she learned this business from her girlfriends and later decided to start her own venture.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital. She will buy blenders in the city of Oruro and then sell them in her permanent stand in the city of El Alto. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her home the best way possible since she lives in a free union and has four children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health 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.
