The "MAÑANERAS" communal bank will be starting its fourteenth cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Villa Exaltación centre. It is made up of eight members and is run by a board of directors of which Maria is the President. The businesses which the members of the communal association run are varied and among them are: making blankets, selling chickens, selling blankets, selling footwear, bookshop, selling general merchandise, laundry and selling appliances.

The loan they are taking out will benefit small businesswomen of which Maria is an example. She says she joined Pro Mujer three years ago after being invited by a friend who is a member of the institution. Currently she runs a sewing business and sells chickens. She learnt the business when she was working in a workshop and then with a loan from Pro Mujer she decided to set up her own independent work space.

The loan she is taking out is to increase capital to buy fabric which she will buy from the wholesale stores in the city of El Alto and will use to make goods to sell. This kind of work allows her to generate income to maintain her household as much as possible, since she lives with a partner and has seven children.

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

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.
