The Communal Bank “Illimani” is starting its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Alto Lima Community Center. This group consists of eight members and is led by a Board of Directors in which Sra. Yola is the president. The members of this Communal Bank engage in various businesses such as making pastries, managing a neighborhood store, knitting baby clothes, selling potato chips, managing a bookstore, selling slippers, selling clothes, and weaving blankets from vicuña wool.

This loan will benefit small business owners such as Sra. Yola. She says that she joined Pro Mujer 12 years ago after receiving an invitation from another member of the organization who visited her at her house. Yola currently has a business of making and selling empanadas and snacks. She is knowledgeable about this business because she learned these skills at a training center. Later on, she decided to establish a business in her area.

The loan she is receiving now will be used to increase her capital for buying flour in bulk. She acquires her supplies from the distribution stores in the city of El Alto and then uses them to make the products she sells from her retail space. Working in this manner enables her to generate income to support her family. Yola is married and has four children.

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.
