The "Rosales" communal bank will begin its fourth loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Alto Lima regional office. It is comprised of eight members and it's headed by a presiding board in which Maritza serves as a secretary. The types of business conducted by the members of the communal bank are varied, and among them are selling beds, selling blankets, sewing overalls, weaving and selling blankets, selling games, selling beer and weaving gloves and caps.

The loan they'll receive will benefit the small business owners, one of which is Maritza. She reports that she has been a part of Pro Mujer for a year. She joined by invitation from one of the institution's promoters, who came to visit her at home. She currently owns a business weaving blankets. She learned this trade because she used to help her mother, then later on she decided to start her own independent business.

The loan she'll receive now is to increase her working capital by purchasing wool. She'll buy it at the street fairs of the town of El Alto, then after she weaves it, she'll display it in her sales area. This line of work allows her to obtain earnings in order to support her household as well as she can, since she's single and has a son.

When asked about what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she enjoys the medical advice and the savings.

The group is joined by the sister of one of the ladies. She's wearing a coffee-colored sweater.

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.
