The communal bank “KAYIMBAYA” is beginning its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de Villa Tejada. It is made up of nine members and is directed by a board of directors where señora Hermenegilda is President. The members of the communal bank have various businesses, among which there are: mobile phone sales, clothing sales, a clothing shop, a carpentry workshop, food sales, blanket-weaving, kebab sales, pepper sales, and condiment sales.

The loan which they will receive will benefit small micro businesses where señora Hermenegilda is a member. She says that she became a member of Pro Mujer one year ago, after the invitation of one of the organisation's promoters who came to visit her at her home. She currently has a business selling pulses. She explains that she started this business several years ago to support her parents, who did the same work.

The loan which she will receive now is to increase capital (buying seeds wholesale), which she will acquire from the wholesale sellers in La Paz and later grow in her allotment. This way of working allows her to generate income to support her family, as she is married and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the health service that the organisation 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.
