The Wiñay Marka communal bank will begin its eighth cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Andes Regional Office. It is composed of nine members and is led by a governing board, of which Señora Eva María is President. The businesses of the communal bank's members are varied, and include, among others: making macrame textiles, selling shampoo, making and selling party favours, selling YAMBAL cosmetic products, and providing transportation services.

The loan that they will take out will benefit small business owners like Señora Eva María. She says that she became a member of Pro Mujer eight cycles ago, joining at the invitation of a friend who was a member of the institution. Today, she sells food through her small restaurant business; she took up this business jointly with her husband several years ago, observing that there was a good market for it.

The loan that she is taking out now is to equip her place of business (purchasing tables) that she will acquire from distributors in the city of El Alto and later install in her premises. This work permits her to generate income to maintain her household as well as possible, as she is married and has one son.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the health care area.

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.
