The communal bank 6 DE MARZO (March 6th) will begin its first cycle at Pro Mujer, as part of the Collpani branch and it has 6 members and is headed by a board headed by Paulina as president.

The businesses of the members of the communal bank are varied including among them we have the weaving of awayos (hand woven textiles using natural dyes), fish sales, blanket weavings, and selling potatoes.

Paulina tells us this is the first time she has worked with Pro Mujer and she joined the communal bank through the invitation of the counselor. Currently she has a business weaving awayos that she has had for some years, and which she learned from her mother.

The money from the loan that she is asking for is to have cash on hand to buy wool which she will buy at the July 16 Market, and she will use it to make and sell through orders. This work allows her to earn money to support her family; she has a common-law relationship and a son.

When asked what it is she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the training sessions.

La señora Paulina, indica que es la primera vez que trabaja en Pro Mujer y que integro la institución por invitación de la asesora. En la actualidad ella tiene un negocio de tejido de awayos que viene trabajando hace años atrás, el mismo lo aprendió de su mamá.

El crédito que ahora sacará es para aumentar su capital (compra de lana) que adquirirá de la 16 de julio y posteriormente a la elaboración lo comercializará a pedido. Esta forma de trabajo le permite generar recursos para apoyar a su familia, pues ella vive en concubinato y tiene un hijo.

Cuando se le consulta qué le gusta de Pro Mujer, ella responde que le gusta las capacitaciones.

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.
