In one of Pro Mujer's Panamerican centers, you will find the communal bank, "Industrial." They have been together for approximately three years, and they are led by their president, Valentina Laime. They formed their group because of their need for more working capital and to improve their business. They weave by machine; make furniture; and sell food, drinks, potatoes, and clothing. They need this loan to buy supplies such as wool, wood, and merchandise that will let them have more variety to sell to their customers.

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.
