The “CHOJÑA PAMPITA” communal bank is starting its second round with Pro Mujer, as part of the central focus on Patacamaya. It's made up of 8 members and is directed by a board of directors presided by Eusebia. The businesses that the members run vary and include: weaving blankets, selling soft drinks, tractor driving, selling groceries, cheeses or having a grocery shop.

The loan that they will take out will benefit the small business owners that Eusebia presides. She joined Pro Mujer a year ago after a promoter from the institution visited her home and invited her to get involved. At present, she has a crafts business, weaving blankets. She learnt this trade from her mother and has been doing it for several years.

The loan that she is taking out is to increase her capital (buy wool) which she will purchase from the markets in the city of El Alto. After making them she will sell them in her community's market. This work allows her to generate resources to be able to maintain her home as she is married with seven children.

When she is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes that payments take place within her town.

There is one woman missing in the photograph who had to go check her herd.

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.
