The Communal Bank “Luceritos” (Little Bright Stars) is starting its third loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Senkata Community Center. This group consists of eight members and is led by a Board of Directors in which Sra. Rita is the president. The members of this Communal Bank engage in different businesses such as weaving sweaters and blankets, selling potato chips, selling plush toys, selling food, selling fruit, and selling dyes.

This loan will benefit small entrepreneurs such as Sra. Rita. She says that this is the first time she has joined Pro Mujer after receiving an invitation from a friend who is a member of the organization. Rita currently has a business where she weaves and sells blankets. She gained knowledge about this type of work several years ago when she started her business. Rita learned her weaving techniques from a friend and decided to channel this knowledge into a source of income generation.

The loan she is receiving now will be used to increase her capital for buying wool in bulk. She acquires her supplies at the fairs in the city of El Alto and then sells her products according to her customers’ requests. Working in this manner enables her to generate income for supporting her family. Rita is married and has two 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.
