The “Norte Cojata Pampa” communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Achacachi Focal Center. It has nine members led by a governing board whose treasurer is María Magdalena. The communal bank members carry out a variety of businesses among which are: blanket weaving, fruit sales, vegetable sales, butcher shop, skirt sales, food sales and sweater knitting.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit small micro businesswomen like María Magdalena. She indicates that this is her first time with Pro Mujer having joined thanks to a promotion carried out in her zone by the institution. She currently has a business selling food. She makes it known that she started the business two years ago with help from friends who lent her the money. The concept is her mother’s who taught her to cook.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital. She will buy meat and potatoes from wholesalers in the city of La Paz and then sell the food in her sales space. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her family since she’s married and has three children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers 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.
