The "Mujeres Mañaneras" communal bank is starting its eighth loan cycle at the Los Andes regional office of "Pro Mujer". The group has eight members, and is run by a board of directors that has Nancy as its president. The members have different businesses, including selling gloves, selling clothes, a corner shop, offering telephone services, a bed and breakfast, selling skirts, and selling condiments.

This loan will benefit microenterprises in Nancy's group. Nancy herself tells us that she joined "Pro Mujer" 20 years ago, following an invitation from a friend who was a member of the organisation. Nancy currently has a business selling clothes. She tells us that she started this business when she was travelling in Bolivia once. She decided to buy a space to sell her products and to set up in La Paz.

This loan will be used to increase capital by buying clothes in bulk from markets on the border between Bolivia and Peru; Nancy will then sell the clothes at her stall. This work allows Nancy to earn an income to support her family; she is married and has five children.

When asked what she likes about "Pro Mujer", Nancy responds that she likes the health training offered by the organisation.

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.
