The Communal Bank “Florecitas” (Little Flowers) is starting its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Los Andes Community Center. The group has nine members and is led by a Board of Directors headed by Sra. Hilda. The members engage in different business activities so that they can get ahead such as sewing, knitting gloves, selling chickens, selling vegetables, producing macramé, selling groceries, operating a beauty salon, and selling gloves.

Sra. Hilda says that this is the first time she has worked with Pro Mujer. She joined the organization after being invited by a friend. Hilda currently manages a business in which she sells meat. She started working in this business 15 years ago with the help of her parents.

The loan she is currently seeking will be used to buy a refrigerator for preserving meat. She will buy this piece of equipment from the slaughterhouse and set aside space for it in her shop. Working in this manner allows her to generate income to support her family. Hilda is married and has three children.

When asked what she enjoys about Pro Mujer, Hilda said that she likes the biweekly payments because they allow her to pay off her loan more quickly.

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.
