The “PODEROSAS DE JUAN PABLO” ("The Powerful Women from Juan Pablo") communal bank will start its third cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Collpani regional office. It has eight members and is led by a board, whose president is Andrea. The businesses run by the members of this communal bank are diverse: knitting blankets, sewing jackets, construction services, selling chuño (freeze-dried potato), knitting sweaters, and selling food.

The loan they will take out will benefit the small micro-entrepeneurs, and Andrea is one of them. She says that she has been a member of Pro Mujer for three cycles, having entered the group after being invited by a friend, who is a member of this institution. Currently, she has a business knitting blankets, and says that she learned this business from friends many years ago. When she needed to generate income she decided to apply this knitting strategy as a business source..

The loan she will take out is to increase capital to purchase wool that she will buy wholesale in the city of La Paz, which she will later use to produce and sell in her sale space. This type of work will allow her to produce resources to support her family, since she is married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answered that she likes the loan and savings areas.

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.
