The "Rositas de Chijipina Alto" communal bank will start their first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Copacabana regional office. The group is made up of 10 members, and it is led by a board of directors of which Modesta is the president. The members of the communal bank have a business selling milk, but some of them also support themselves by making clay pots and weaving blankets.

The loan that they are requesting will be used to help small businesses in which Modesta is a member. Modesta says that this is the first time that they have joined Pro Mujer, having been invited by a sponsor from the institution who visited her at her home.

Currently, she has a business selling clay pots. She learned this trade from her parents, as it was a family business. After having her first child, she decided to start her own business.

The loan that she is seeking will be used to increase her working capital by purchasing an oven which she will acquire from a community in the La Paz district. She will then sell her products in her store. This type of work allows her to earn an income to support her family, as she lives in a common-law marriage and has nine children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the training that they offer.

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.
