The Estrella de Cristo communal bank will begin its second cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Alto Lima Regional Office. It's made up of 10 members governed by a board of directors of which Sandra is the secretary. The various business that the members of the bank carry out are grocery store, shoe sales, weaving and knitting blankets, footwear sales, sandwich sales, carpentry shop, cell-phone sales, and butcher shop.

Their loan will benefit small business women such as Sandra. She says it's her first loan cycle with Pro Mujer, having joined on the invitation of an officer of the institution who visited her at her house. Currently she has a business selling chorizo sandwiches. She says she started this business years ago, because she worked in a separate business and learned to make this product.

This loan is to increase her capital buying a grinder to make chorizo. She'll get it from the stores in the city of La Paz and later sell in her sales stall. This job allows her to generate resources to support herself, because she's single.

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

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.
