Khory Communal Bank will start its seventh loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Patacamaya Regional Office. It's made up of 10 members governed by a board of directors of which Elena's the president. The various businesses of the communal bank members include food sales, tire sales, school supplies sales, transportation, vegetable sales, and gift sales.

The loan they're getting will benefit small business entrepreneurs like Elena. She says she has been a member of Pro Mujer for seven loan cycles, having joined on the invitation of a loan officer who visited her at home. Currently she has a business selling school supplies. She says she started this business eight years ago, seeing the need of village families.

The loan she'll get now is to update her implements by buying school supplies, which she'll get from the markets in the city of El Alto and later sell in her sales stall. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her household to the extent possible, because she's married and has seven children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says the trainings and the loans.

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.
