The “Buenas Vecinas” (Good Neighbors) communal bank will start its third cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Cascada Focal Center. It consists of nine members led by a governing board presided over by Regina. The communal bank members carry out a variety of businesses among which are: blanket weaving, grocery store, silk blanket weaving and vicuña blanket weaving.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit small micro businesswomen like Regina. She indicates that this is her second year with Pro Mujer having joined thanks to a promotional invitation that the institution gave in her zone. She currently has a crafts business knitting sweaters that she started 8 years ago while working with an exporter. She subsequently became independent and set up her own workshop.

The loan she’ll take out is to increase capital. She’ll buy wool from wholesalers in the city of El Alto and after making them will sell them to order. This way of working allows her to support her family since she’s married with two children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers the health training and the credit.

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.
