In one of Pro Mujer's towns, Villa Adela, is the Communal Bank “Avoroa”, which has 8 members. They are developing their group by having meetings where they make rules and are lead by their board (president, treasurer, and secretary). They came together as neighbors and friends who all lived around the center of town where they can get the most working capital and raw materials for their businesses. Three members are weavers and five are merchants who buy and sell metal furniture, plastics, slippers, and fruit.

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.
