The Communal Bank “Las Madres Trabajadoras de San Juan” (The Working Mothers of San Juan) consists of enterprising women who work day after day to meet the household needs of their families. One of these women is Vilma, who is the mother of four adult children who are independent. She has been working four years with EDAPROSPO-Prosperidad and was able to improve her business during this time. Vilma began selling cosmetics, using her home as a base for generating sales. She still had to leave her home to promote her products to her friends and neighbors.

After a relative became ill and required hospitalization, Vilma struck up a conversation with a nurse who told her about some natural products that could help her family. She signed up to acquire these products at low cost and tried them on the family member who was ill. Good results were achieved, which proved that the doctors at the hospital were wrong. The relative eventually passed away, but lived two years longer than what the doctors had expected.

Vilma also signed up to become a vendor of surgical products made of steel such as pans, scalpels, trays, and other items to sell to her customers. The earnings from her sales have enabled her to buy a refrigerator, a freezer, an industrial oven, a counter, and other necessities. She plans to open a restaurant using a space she already has. This will allow her to spend more time at home and dedicate herself exclusively to her restaurant.

She dreams of managing her restaurant business and seeing her children become professionals.

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.
