The communal bank “Amigas de Puerto Perez” is starting its second loan cycle with Centro Focal de Copacabana. The group is comprised of eight members, and Vanesa is the president. The activities that the group members are involved in are diverse - these include the sale of food, fish, and vegetables, as well as a neighborhood shop.

Vanesa reports that it has been six months since the communal bank formed under the organization Pro Mujer and that they were invited by the staff to join. Currently Vanessa has a neighborhood shop, and she has worked in this business for several years.

The loan she is currently seeking is to help stock her store with groceries. She buys these items in the traditional markets of El Alto and later sells them from her shop. This form of work will help her to improve her family's situation, as she is married and has two children. When we asked her what she likes about Pro Mujer, she told us that she likes the training they provide in the areas of health and finance.

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.
