Nuevo Amanecer Communal Bank will start its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Copacabana Regional Office. It's made up of eight members governed by a board of directors of which Herminia's the president. The communal bank members carry out a variety of businesses, including weaving shawls, ice cream sales, cattle sales, shawl sales, potato and "chuño" [freeze-dried potato] sales, and mattress sales.

The loan they're going to get will benefit small business entrepreneurs like Herminia. She says she has been with Pro Mujer for two loan cycles, having joined on the invitation of a friend who's a member. Currently she has a business selling mattresses, which she says she started five years ago as an independent business. Previously she had worked with her parents in a family business.

The loan Herminia's going to get now is to increase her capital by buying mattresses, which she'll get from the wholesale markets in the city of El Alto and then sell in her sales space. This form of work allows her to generate income to support her household to the extent possible, because she's in a common-law marriage and has four children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she says the trainings and the increase in capital that they help with.

Esta forma de trabajo le permite generar recursos para mantener en lo posible a su hogar pues ella vive en unión libre y tiene cuatro hijos.

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.
