The Communal Bank “Chicas Azucar de Panamericana” is starting its third loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Panamericana Community Center. This group consists of eight members and is led by a Board of Directors in which Norah is the president. The members of this Communal Bank engage in various businesses such as carpentry, producing blankets, knitting blankets, knitting sweaters, selling fruit, and selling appliances.

This loan will benefit small entrepreneurs such as Sra. Norah. She says that she joined Pro Mujer three years ago after receiving an invitation from an advisor of the organization who visited her at her house. Norah currently has a business of weaving blankets that she started recently. After she learned her weaving techniques from her friends, Norah decided to establish her own work space.

The loan she is receiving now will be used to increase her capital for buying wool, which she will acquire at the wholesale shops in the city of El Alto. She will then use the material for making and selling the products that have been ordered by her customers. Working in this manner enables her to generate income to maintain her household. Norah is married and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Norah said that she enjoys the health services.

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.
