The "Mariscal de Vilaque" communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Copacabana field office. It's made up of eight members and is led by an executive board of which Señora Basilia is the president. The members of the communal bank run a variety of businesses including food sales, artisanal crafts, knitting sweaters, tostada sales, vegetable sales, a neighborhood store, livestock sales, and sales of "salchipapa" [sausage with fried potatoes].

The loan they will take out will benefit small microbusinesses like Basilia's. She states that she joined Pro Mujer one year ago at the invitation of a representative of the institution who had come to visit her at home. Currently, she has a food sales business. She explains that her business was a family business that she decided to undertake independently after her marriage.

The loan that she will now take out is for increasing her capital to buy groceries at wholesale. She will acquire them from vendors in the city of El Alto and after she cooks them, she will sell them in her sales location. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her family, as she is married and has one son.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the loans 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.
