The “Bellas Rosas” (Beautiful Roses) communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Juan Pablo II Focal Center. It has six members led by a governing board presided by Feliza. The communal bank members carry out a variety of business among which are: knitted sweater sales, blanket and sweater knitting, cattle sales, traditional skirt and blouse sales, sportswear sewing and tire repair shop.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit small micro businesswomen one of which is Feliza. She indicates that she joined Pro Mujer six months ago having been invited by one of the institution’s promoters who went to visit her. She currently has a business knitting blankets. She started it years ago on her own initiative since she’s had these skills since she was a girl.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital. She’ll buy yarn in wholesale stores and then sell what she makes in her sales stand. This way of working allows her to generate income to support her home in the best way possible since she’s married and has a son. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health services.

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.
