The “Río de Plata” communal bank will start its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Los Andes focal center. It has 8 members led by a governing board headed by Virginia. The members of this communal bank carry out a variety of businesses. Among them we have: liquor store, candy store, sweater knitting, crafts making, graphic design, beef offal and minibus helper.

Virginia indicates that she’s worked in Pro Mujer for two cycles and that she joined the institution invited by her girlfriends. She has been selling meat for several years since it’s a family business.

The loan she’s requesting is to increase capital (to purchase beef offal in the rural areas at wholesale and then resell in her sales point). This way of working allows her to generate income to support her family since she’s single and has three children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she answers that she likes the training.

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.
