The "Jiltañani" communal bank is entering its first cycle in Pro Mujer, as part of its Senkata regional office. The group is made up of eight members, and it is led by a board of directors of which Patricia is the president. The members of the communal bank are engaged in various businesses such as bookstores, copy stores, selling hotdogs and french fries, selling pants, bakeries, making skirts, grocery stores, selling cleaning products.

The loan that they are seeking will benefit the small businesses of which Patricia is a member. She states that this is the first time that she has joined Pro Mujer. She joined after being invited by a friend who is a member of the institution. Currently, she has a business making Bolivian skirts. She tells us that she learned this trade in a previous job where she was an assistant. Afterwards, she decided to become independent and start her own business.

The loan that she is receiving will be used to increase her capital (purchasing fabric in bulk) that she will purchase from stores in the city of El Alto, and after making the skirts, she will sell them in her retail space. This line of work allows her to earn an income to support her family, as she is married and has four children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she states that she likes the training that the institution offers.

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.
