The “ROSITAS” communal bank is starting its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Patacamaya regional center. The group is made up of eight members, and it is led by a board of directors, with the borrower Ines serving as Treasurer. The businesses operated by the members of this communal bank are varied, including buying and selling vegetables; construction; selling party costumes; potato production and sales; llama butcher shop; vegetable production and sales; neighborhood store; and handicrafts.

The loan they will take out will benefit small microenterprises in this group where Ines is a member. She indicates that this is the first time that she has joined Pro Mujer. She joined on the invitation of a promoter of the institution who came to her house to invite her. Currently, she operates a neighborhood store, which she started on her own initiative two years ago.

The loan that she will now take out is to expand her business (buying sardines, sugar, etc.). She will buy these goods in the markets of the city of La Paz and later she will sell them in her sales space, which is open every day. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her family as much as possible, since she lives in a common-law marriage and has three children.

When she is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the training on the topics of health and credit.

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.
