The “Agua Dulce” (Sweet Water) communal bank will start its fifth cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Juan Pablo Focal Center. It has 8 members led by a governing board headed by Lupe. The communal bank members carry out a variety of businesses. Among them we have meat sales, “salchipapas” [fried potatoes with fried sausages], hardware, locksmith, Broaster-style chicken sales, photography and filming, lubricants and vegetable sales.

Lupe indicates that she’s been a member of a Pro Mujer communal bank for 15 years having been invited to join by her fellow members. At present, she has a butcher shop that she’s had for years. She learned this activity from one of her godmothers.

The loan she’ll take out now is to buy an electric grinder that she’ll install in her butcher shop because she only has manual equipment. She tells us that the business she develops her business every day and sell in her sales space in El Alto. This business helps her support her family since she has a spouse and five children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the savings she has.

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.
