The “Porteñitas de Lanza” communal bank will start its second cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Copacabana Focal Center. It has ten members led by a governing board presided over by Elena. The communal bank members carry out a variety of businesses among which are: food sales, soft-drink sales, turnover sales, bakery and seamstress services.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit small micro businesswomen like Elena. She indicates that she’s been in Pro Mujer for two cycles having joined thanks to an invitation from an institution promoter that visited her at home. She currently has a food business. She makes it known that she learned the business from her mother who also is in this line of work. She decided to start her own business 8 years ago.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital. She will buy vegetables in the city of El Alto’s street markets and then sell the food in her sales space once she makes it. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her home as best as possible since she’s single and has a son. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the credit.

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.
