Villavista Cojata Pampa Communal Bank will start its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Achacachi Regional Office. It's made up of eight members and governed by a board of directors of which Juana's the president. The members carry out a variety of businesses, including milk sales, cheese sales, livestock sales, wool sales, weaving bedding, and food sales.

The loan they're getting will benefit small business entrepreneurs like Juana. She says it's the first time she has been a member of Pro Mujer, having joined on the invitation of a counselor from the institution who visited her at home. Currently she has a business selling food, which she learned several years ago helping her mother in the family business. Later she decided to continue with the business but on her own.

The loan she's going to get is to increase her capital by buying rice, oil, and pasta in the local markets. After preparing the food she'll sell it in her stall. This form of work allows her to generate income to support her household to the extent possible, because she's married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she says the health and loan training.

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.
