The “Machacamarca” communal bank will start their third loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Patacamaya regional center. This group is comprised of nine members and is managed by a board of directors where Esther is president. The members of the communal bank are engaged in varied types of businesses including potato production, clothes-making, selling dairy products, making blankets, buying and selling soft drinks, and chuño [traditional dried potato] production.

The loan they are taking out will benefit small microbusinesses where Esther is a member. She says that she joined in Pro Mujer’s third cycle, and became a member at the invitation of an adviser that came to visit her in her home. Currently, she has a clothes-making workshop; she states that she learned this business from her parents from an early age because they have the same business.

The loan she is taking out now is to increase working capital. She will purchase wholesale fabric, which she will acquire in the stores in El Alto. After production, she will market her clothing in her sales space. This type of work allows her to generate income to support her family as she lives in a common-law marriage and has two children. When asked what she liked about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the training the institution offers her.

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.
