The communal bank members carry out a variety of businesses, including selling stove parts, selling gelatin, selling fried potatoes, making cracklings, selling bathing suits, making glasses, and upholstery.

The loan they're getting will benefit small business entrepreneurs like Gregoria. She says she has been a member of Pro Mujer for five years, having joined on the invitation of a close friend who's a member of the institution. Currently she has a business selling food, which she started a year ago on the recommendation of her sister.

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.
