The “ESTRELLAS DE WARA” community bank will begin its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de Santiago II centre. It is made up of eight members and managed by board of directors chaired by Señora Cesaria. The members of the community bank run various businesses, including selling mobile phones, hot dogs and chips, food, vegetables, and wooden crafts, and buying and selling blankets, sewing duvets, and selling sandals.

The loan they take out will benefit small micro-entrepreneurs including Señora Cesaria. She says that she joined Pro Mujer ten years ago, after being invited by a friend who is a member of the organisation. She currently has a business selling sandals. She explains that she set this business up on her own initiative a number of years ago, after noting that it was a product which would always have a market.

The loan she is going to take out now is to increase capital (to buy wholesale sandals) which she will get from wholesalers in the city of El Alto. She will then sell them in her sales outlet. This way of work allows her to make money to support her family financially, as she has a partner and five children.

When she is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replies that she likes the healthcare area offered by the organisation.

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.
