The communal bank "Villa Esther" will be starting its second term in Pro Mujer (Pro Woman) as part of the Centro Focal of Santiago II. It is comprised of eight members and is run by a Board of Directors headed by Constancia, the president. The members have a wide variety of businesses, including a bakery, a cleaning service, bread sales, clothing sales, and the weaving of wool sweaters.

The loan will benefit the tiny businesses of the organization where Constance is a member. She said that they joined Pro Mujer a year ago at the invitation of her sister-in-law, who is a member of the institution. Currently, she runs a bakery, which helps to sustain her family. She learned how to run this business with the help of a family member who gave her the start-up capital.

This loan will be used to invest in capital through the purchase of flour, which she will get from one of the wholesaler vendors in the city of El Alto. After using the flour for baking, she will sell her products in her sales space. This work generates income for her that makes it possible for her to maintain her home and family, as she is married and has four children.

When asked what she liked about Pro Mujer, she said that she liked the health assistance.

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.
