The “Flor Kantuta” communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Collpani Center. It has nine members led by a governing board headed by Fortunata. The members of the communal bank carry out a variety of business activities such as: blanket weaving, butchering pigs, embroidery work, vicuña wool blanket weaving, raising pigs and chickens, milk production, neighborhood store, jacket making, leather jacket making.

Fortunata says that this is the first time she’s joined Pro Mujer and that she joined thanks to an invitation from a loan promoter. She currently sews jackets; she’s been in business seven years having learned from her husband.

The loan she’ll take out now is to buy a straight stitch sewing machine that will help her sew her products. After she makes them she sells them via direct deliveries. This method of work allows her to earn income to support her family as much as possible since she’s married and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she answers that she likes the training, the health services and the savings.

Zulma does not appear in the photo because she had to keep a medical appointment.

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.
