The “Vicuñas de Oro” (Golden Vicuñas) communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Los Andes Focal Center. It has six members led by a governing board headed by Claudina. The members are engaged in a variety of businesses. Among them are: eatery, blanket weaving, mirror sales, bricklaying, carpentry and fried pork production.

Claudina indicates that this is the first time she’s worked with Pro Mujer and that she joined the institution thanks to an invitation from one of the promoters. She currently has a business selling food that she started two years ago and that she learned from her mother.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital; she will purchase noodles, rice, sugar, etc. at wholesale in La Ceja and 16 de Julio market. Once she makes the food she’ll sell it at a minibus stop. This way of working allows her to generate family income because she’s single and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replies that she likes the credit and health training.

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.
