The “6 DE JULIO” Communal Bank will start its fourth loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Senkata Regional Center. It is composed of eight members and led by a board of directors of which Sra. Isabel is president. The members of the communal bank run a variety of businesses including the sale of food, the sale of vegetables, a neighborhood store, and knitted sweaters and woven blankets.

The funding that they take out will benefit small businesswomen such as Sra. Isabel. She notes that she became a member of Pro Mujer three loan cycles ago. She was invited to join by a friend who is a member of the association. Currently she has a business where she makes and sells pastries. She reveals that she began this business on her own initiative five years ago and that it took time and perseverance to attract customers.

The loan that she will take out now is to increase capital (for the purchase of a freezer) and that she will acquire it at the markets in the city of El Alto and later install it at her sales venue. This kind of work enables her to generate resources to maintain her home as much as possible since she is married and has three children.

When asked what she enjoys about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the subject of health.

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.
