The communal bank “MARISCAL INTOCABLES” will begin its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of Centro Focal de Santiago II. The group has eight members, and Juana is president of its board. The members have a variety of professions including managing a neighborhood store; weaving blankets; and selling food, vegetables, juices, and salchipapas [French fries with hot dogs].

This loan program helps micro businesses like the one Juana is a member of. She says this is the first time she has worked with Pro Mujer, to which she was introduced by an institution representative who visited her home. She currently weaves blankets, which she learned by helping her mother. Later, Juana started her own business.

The loan will provide increased capital to buy wool, which Juana will purchase from wholesalers. After weaving the wool, she will fill her customer orders. This work lets Juana earn income to help her family; she is married and has a son. She says she likes the training in credit and health issues she receives from Pro Mujer.

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.
