The “Estrellas Celestes” (Celestial Stars) communal bank will start the fourth cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Collpani Focal Center. It has 8 members led by a governing board presided over by Isabel. The communal bank members carry out a variety of businesses among which are: macramé, sack making, furniture sales, plant sales, curtain making, food sales and publicity services.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit small micro businesswomen like Isabel. She indicates that she’s been in Pro Mujer for three cycles having joined thanks to an invitation from a friend who is a member of the institution. She currently has a sewing workshop that she started years ago as a business selling clothes. She later on decided to start making her own designs and putting them up for sale since she’s skilled at sewing.

The loan she’ll take out is to increase capital. She will buy fabric from stores in the city of El Alto and after making them will sell them in her sales space. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her home as possible since she’s married and has three children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers the health area and the training.

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.
