Las Rebeldes Communal Bank will start its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Collpani Regional Office. It's made up of 11 members governed by a board of directors of which Brenda's the president. The various businesses of the bank members include coffee, tea, and yerba mate sales; food sales; a bakery; shoes sales; cheese sales; perfume sales; tailoring; filming and photography; quilt sales; and fried potato sales.

The loan they'll get will benefit small business entrepreneurs like Brenda. She says she has belonged to Pro Mujer for six months, having joined on the invitation of a friend who's a member. Currently she has a tailoring business, which she learned when she was working in a previous job. Later, when she got married, she decided to set up her own shop.

The loan Brenda will get is to increase her capital by buying fabric, which she'll get from the stores in the city of El Alto and, after production, sell in her stall. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her household as much as possible, because she's married and has four children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says the health field.

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.
