The "Lecheritas" communal bank will begin its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer, through the Patacamaya regional office. The group has eight members, directed by a board, the president of which is Miriam. The members of the communal bank have various types of business, including: cattle selling, producing vegetables, selling milk, blouse-making, grocery stores, selling vegetables and selling bread.

The loan that the group is taking out will benefit the small businesswomen who are members of the same communal bank as Miriam. She says she joined Pro Mujer six months ago after someone from the institution visited her at home offered her an invitation. She currently has a milk business, and says she learned this trade from her mother-in-law after she married.

The loan she is taking out is to increase her capital to purchase a dairy cow which she will buy in the neighbouring communities. Then the capital will go to raising the animal and then selling milk from her fixed post. This type of work allows Miriam to earn the money to maintain her household as best as possible. She is married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the health education and education on the loans.

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.
