The "Primavera" (Spring) communal bank will start its 25th loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the association's Andes regional office. The group has eight members, and is led by a board of which Rosenda is the chairperson. The businesses carried out by the members of this communal bank are varied, and include the knitting of sweaters, the sale of skirts, the sale of sweaters, the running of a billiards room, the sale of potatoes and potato starch, the sale of vegetables, and the sale of sweatpants.

The loan that they will take out will benefit these small business owners, including Rosenda. She says that this is the first time that she has worked with Pro Mujer, and joined the association upon being invited to do so by a Pro Mujer representative who went to visit her in her home. She currently has a business knitting sweaters. She relies on this work, and learned her trade in a workshop run by her cousin, where she used to work.

The loan she will take out now is to increase her capital (to buy wool). She will acquire this wool from distribution companies, and will then sell the clothing she makes in the cities of Potosí, Cochabamba and Oruro. This way of working allows her to generate the resources she needs to provide for her household as best as possible, as she is married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Rosenda said that she likes the health and savings areas.

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.
