The "Yana Pacuna" communal bank will begin its sixth loan cycle with Pro Mujer, through the Collpani regional office. This communal bank is made up of eight members and is run by a board of directors where Lucy is president. The members of the communal bank have various kinds of business, including: selling meat, a grocery store, selling meals, building work, selling beer, selling sweatshirts, trouser-making, and selling miscellaneous items.

This loan will benefit small business owners in Lucy's group. Lucy tells us that she joined Pro Mujer two years ago, following an invitation from a friend, who is a member of the communal bank. Lucy currently has a business selling meat. She started this business a few years ago, having learned the trade from her sister.

This loan will be used to increase capital, by buying meat in bulk from the wholesalers in the city of El Alto. Lucy will then sell the products. This work allows Lucy to earn an income to support her family: Lucy has a partner and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Lucy tells us that she likes to the health 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.
