The “Aladinas” communal bank will start its second cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Collpani Focal Center. It has nine members led by a governing board whose secretary is Alison. The members of the communal bank carry out a variety of businesses among which are catalog sales, blanket weaving, neighborhood store, CD sales, skirt sewing, fruit selling, ‘salchipapa’ [fried sausages with fried potatoes] sales and coffee sales.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit small micro businesswomen like Alison. She indicates that she’s been a member of Pro Mujer for six months having joined thanks to an invitation from a girlfriend who is a member of the institution. She currently has a business selling beauty products that she started with a loan she got from Pro Mujer.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital. She will buy cosmetics from suppliers and then resell them on order. This way of working allows her to generate income for her schooling. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health services and the training.

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.
