The “14 de Junio” (June 14th) communal bank will start the fifth cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Alto Lima Focal Center. It has 8 members led by a governing board whose treasurer is Beatriz. The communal bank members have a variety of businesses such as: fruit sales, food sales, sewing workshop, clothing sales, hat sales and backpack manufacturing.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit small micro businesswomen like Beatriz. She states that she’s been part of Pro Mujer for two years having joined thanks to an invitation from one of the institution’s advisors that visited her at home. She currently has a business selling fruit and she makes it known that she learned the business from her mother who she helped with the same kind of business. When she started to live with her spouse she decided to go into business for herself.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital. She will buy fruit in traditional street markets at wholesale and then sell it in her stand. This way of working makes it possible for her to generate income to support her family since she’s in a common law relationship and has a son. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers the credit and the savings.

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.
