San Roque Communal Bank will start its fourth loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Panamericana regional office. It's made up of eight members and governed by a board of directors of which Emma is the president. The various businesses of the communal bank members include cleaning product sales, ice cream sales, knitting sweaters, hardware store, leggings and shawl sales, cosmetics sales, sweater sales, and food sales.

This loan will benefit small business entrepreneurs such as Emma. She says she has been a member of Pro Mujer for a year and a half, having been invited to join by a loan officer from the institution who visited her at home.

Currently she has a business knitting and selling women's sweaters. She says she started this business on the recommendation of her sister, who taught her the characteristics of the business.

The loan she's getting now is to increase her capital by buying wool, which she'll acquire from the markets in the city of La Paz and, after production, sell in her sales stall. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her household as much as possible, because she's single and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she says the health support.

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.
