The “Bright Stars of Alba” communal bank has begun its 3rd loan cycle in Pro Mujer, as part of the “Los Andes” Central Office. It is composed of 7 members and led by a directorate with Blanca as president. The members' businesses are varied; among them, selling woolen mattresses, footwear, fruit, ESIKA products, and meals.

The loan each member will receive will benefit small micro-entreprenuers like member Blanca. She tells us that some 5 years ago she joined Pro Mujer, enrolling at the invitation of a promoter from the institution who visited her home. Now, Blanca has a business making and selling skirts. She says that she learned her business from an aunt some 15 years ago and, subsequently, she decided to implement her own business.

The loan Blanca is taking out is to increase her capital for purchasing cloth, which she will acquire from wholesale distributors, then turn into skirts to sell in her market stall. This type of work permits her to generate resources for maintaining her home as much as possible, since she is married and expecting a baby.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Blanca responded that she likes the savings, the loans, the training, and the health area.

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.
