Sofía Dávila Communal Bank will begin its fifth loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Panamericana regional office. It's made up of 11 members and governed by a board of directors of which Hilaria's the president. The businesses of the communal bank members are varied and include food sales, a variety store, fish sales, tent sales, blanket weaving, a butcher shop, alpaca yarn, a neighborhood store, and vegetable sales.

The loan they'll get will benefit small business entrepreneurs like Hilaria. She says this is the fourth cycle she has been with Pro Mujer, having joined on the invitation of a facilator from the institution who visited her at her house.

Currently she has a business selling meat. She says she learned the business from her daughters, because they do this work. Later she decided to set up her own sales space.

The loan she'll get is to increase her capital by buying meat, which she'll get from the distributors in the city of El Alto and then sell in her stall. This form of work allows her to generate resources for her family, because she's married and has five children.

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.
