The Communal Bank “Zapatito Velos-10” is starting its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the German Busch Community Center. This group consists of eight members and is led by a Board of Directors headed by Sra. Miriam as its president. The members of this Communal Bank engage in different businesses such as spinning thread from alpaca wool, selling spare parts, selling stockings, selling food, working as a construction assistant, working as a scrap metal merchant, managing a neighborhood store, making woven sweaters, and selling women’s clothing.


This loan will benefit small businesswomen such as Sra. Miriam. She says that she joined Pro Mujer nine years ago after receiving an invitation from her sister-in-law, who is also a member of the organization. Miriam currently has a business of selling automobile parts. She took the initiative to learn this trade and has been in business for several years.


The loan she is receiving now will increase her capital for buying radiators, which she will acquire from the distribution shops in the city of El Alto. She will sell them later from her retail space. Working in this manner enables her to generate income to support her household. Miriam is married and has three children.


When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Miriam said that she enjoys the health services and the training sessions.

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.
