The communal bank “Rositas de Hospital” will start its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of Centro Focal de Copacabana. The group has ten members, and its board president is Lindaura. The communal bank members have various businesses: selling milk, selling CDs, carpentry, selling cheese, selling livestock, and selling wool.

This loan will benefit a micro business, of which Lindaura is a partner. She says this is the first time she has been a member of Pro Mujer, which she joined when an associate of the institution came to her house. Lindaura sells milk products. Her mother taught her how to make the products, and later she decided to sell her merchandise at fairs. She will use this loan to buy barley at local fairs to feed her livestock. Her work generates income to support her household; she is single and has a son.

When asked what she liked about Pro Mujer, she answered that she liked the training and saving. Two of the group members do not appear in the photo because they were bringing their livestock back from the fields.

En la actualidad ella tiene un negocio de venta de leche; da a conocer que este negocio lo aprendió de su madre quien le enseño a la elaboración de estos productos, posteriormente decide llevar sus productos a las ferias donde los vende.

El crédito que ahora sacará es para el alimento de sus animales (compra de cebada) que adquirirá de las ferias aledañas y posteriormente lo dará a sus animales. Esta forma de trabajo le permite generar recursos para mantener en lo posible a su hogar pues ella es soltera y tiene un hijo.

Cuando se le consulta qué le gusta de Pro Mujer, ella responde que le gusta las capacitaciones y el ahorro.

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.
