The businesses carried out by the communal bank’s members are varied; among them are a grocery store, sign painting, selling fried chicken, hat knitting, natural medicine, cosmetic sales, fish sales.
The loan that they will take out will benefit small micro-businesswomen, one of whom is Beatriz. She says that this is their first time with Pro Mujer, joining at the invitation of a friend who is a member of the organization. Currently, she has a business painting signs. She learned the trade from her husband. When they married, he already had his own workshop. Beatriz later decided to become independent and have her own business.
The loan that she will take out now is to increase the working capital, purchasing paint wholesale from merchants in the city of La Paz. She will then store them in her selling space, because she works based on customer request. This way of working allows her to generate income to support her family because she is married and has two children.
When asked what she enjoys about Pro Mujer, she replied that she likes the savings and the health area offered by her institution. In the picture, one of the members is missing because she had to leave early due to work reasons.

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.
