The “Torre Fuerte I” (Mighty Tower I) communal bank will start its second cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Tejada Focal Center. It has six members led by a governing board whose secretary is María. The members of the communal bank carry out a variety of businesses. Among them we have: beauty products sales, neighborhood grocery store, shoe sales and furniture sales.

María indicates that this is the second cycle she’s participated in a Pro Mujer communal bank having been invited to join by a girlfriend. She currently has a furniture selling business that she’s been operating for years having learned it from her uncles.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase merchandise in her business (to purchase furniture) that she’ll buy from distributors in the city of El Alto and then sell in her sales point. This business helps her to support herself since she’s married and has a son.

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

In the photo, Daniela’s absence is noted; she was at a health clinic 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.
