The "Otro Día" ("Another Day") communal bank is beginning its third cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Alto Lima regional hub. This group is made up of nine members and is run by a board of directors, of which María is the president. The members' businesses are varied and include selling fruit, selling salchipapas (fried potatoes with hot dogs), selling computers, sewing layettes, selling sneakers, and carpentry.

This loan will benefit small business owners such as María. She joined Pro Mujer six years ago by invitation from one of the institution's promoters, who visited her at home. She currently has a business selling fruit. She says that she took on this business when her grandmother died and she inherited the stall and the business. This business helps her family.

She will use this loan to increase her working capital by buying wholesale fruit from the traditional markets. She will later sell this fruit from her sales point. This type of work allows her to generate an income to support her family, as she is in a common-law marriage with two children.

When asked what she likes best about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the health workshops and the loans.

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.
