The communal bank "Kullaquitas" will begin its first cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of its central offices in Collpani. It is made up of six members and is run by a board of directors of which Señora María Eugenia is the president. The businesses that the members of the communal bank carry out are varied, among them are: vicuna textiles, coca sales, blanket weaving, spinning vicuna thread, selling athletic clothing, and selling tools.

The loan that they have asked for will benefit small businesses where Señora María Eugenia is a member. She says that she she joined Pro Mujer two years ago at the invitation of a friend who is part of the institution. Right now she has a business selling blankets woven from vicuna and alpaca thread, a business she implemented several years ago, having learned this sewing technique from her mother.

The loan that she has now asked for is to increase her capital by buying vicuna thread that she will acquire at the traditional fairs in the city of El Alto and will later use to make her products which she will sell by orders. This form of working allows her to generate resources to support her home as much as possible because she is single and has a son.

When asked if she liked Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the training related to loans and health, and the medical reviews.

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.
