The communal bank "Progreso" will start its 3rd loan cycle in the Villa Tejada central office of Pro Mujer. This group has 9 members, and is led by a board of directors where Lucia is the president. The members of this communal bank have a variety of businesses, including: raising animals, cultivating vegetables, and livestock production and sales.

This loan will benefit the small business people in this group where Lucia is a member. She states that she joined Pro Mujer 3 years ago at the invitation of a loan officer who was at her house. Now she has a business raising animals; she acquired the business from her parents, who had it from the time she was a child. Now she runs the business to support herself.

The loan that she will take now will be used to buy food for her cattle (fodder), which she will buy in the markets in the city of El Alto and later feed to her cattle. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family as much as she can, as she is married and has 3 children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answered that she likes the health services.

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.
