The “Campanitas” (Little Bells) communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Exaltación Focal Center. It has 7 members led by a governing board presided over by Virginia. The communal bank members carry out a variety of businesses among which are: blanket weaving, food sales, assorted goods sales, coca leaf sales and used clothes sales.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit small micro businesswomen like Virginia. She indicates that this is the first time she’s been part of Pro Mujer having joined thanks to an invitation from one of the institution’s advisors that visited her at home. She currently has a business manufacturing blankets that she started having learned from her sister who knew the weaving technique. Later on she decided to start working independently using her savings.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital. She will buy fabric in street markets in the city of El Alto and after manufacture will sell in her sales space. This way of working makes it possible for her to generate income to support her family the best way possible because she’s single and has two children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the credit and the savings.

El crédito que sacaran beneficiara a pequeñas microempresarias donde la señora Virginia es integrante, ella indica que es la primera vez que integra Pro Mujer, ingresando por invitación de una asesora de la institución que fue a su casa a visitarla. En la actualidad ella tiene un negocio de confección de mantas; este negocio lo emprendió por enseñanza de su hermana, quien conocía la técnica de tejido, y que posteriormente ella decide emprender su negocio independientemente utilizando sus ahorros.

El crédito que ahora sacará es para el aumento de capital(compra de telas) que adquirirá de las ferias de la ciudad de El Alto y posteriormente a la elaboración lo comercializará en su espacio de venta. Esta forma de trabajo le permite generar recursos para mantener en lo posible a su hogar pues ella es soltera y tiene dos hijos.

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

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.
