The “Rocío del Amanecer” (Morning Dew) communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Exaltación Center. It has nine members and is led by a governing board headed by María Luisa. The businesses the members are involved in are varied. Among them we have: vegetable production, leafy green vegetable production, construction worker, vegetable sales, minerals merchant and food sales.

María Luisa indicates that she’s been part of Pro Mujer for five years having joined thanks to an invitation from a girl friend. Currently, she has a business selling copper sulphate which started 30 years ago with help from her parents.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase her working capital. She will buy copper sulphate from the mines in Potosí and Coro Coro which she will then sell to private firms when they place orders. This way of working makes it possible for her to generate income to support her family in whatever way possible because she’s married and has five three children.

When she is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health training and the medical clinic.

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.
