The “Sorpresa” (Surprise) communal bank will start the ninth cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Collpani Focal Center. It has 8 members led by a governing board presided over by Anai. The communal bank members carry out a variety of businesses among which are: skirt making, furniture sales, button and thread sales, electronic device sales, MP3 sales, shoe sales and cleaning supplies sales.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit small micro businesswomen like Anai. She indicates that she’s been part of Pro Mujer for two and a half years having joined thanks to an invitation from a girlfriend who is a member of the institution. She currently sells MP3s and mobile phone accessories. She started the business several years ago on her own initiative having learned about the merchandise from her previous bosses.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital. She will buy MP3s from firms and stores at wholesale then then resell them in her sales stand. This way of working allows her to generate resources for her family because she’s in a common law relationship and has two children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health services.

One of the ladies is missing from the photo because she was keeping a medical appointment.

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.
