The communal bank “Agua de la Vida de Viacha” will begin its first cycle in Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de Villa Adela. It is made up of six members and is headed by a board where Sonia is the president. The business that the members of the communal bank are in are varied and among them are: dairy and livestock, macramé, and sewing skirts.

The loan they are taking will benefit small microentrepreneurs where Sonia is a member. She says that it is her first time as a member of Pro Mujer, joining through invitation from a supporter of the institution that came to her home. Currently she has a macramé weaving business. This business she learned from her aunt some years ago.

The loan that she is now taking is to increase her capital (to buy wool) that she will buy in the El Alto markets at wholesale and later her creations are sold by order. This way of working permits her to generate income in order to maintain as much as possible her household, as she is single and has a son.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the training covering 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.
