The communal bank “Polleritas Multicolor” will begin the fifth first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the regional office of Villa Adela. It is made up of eight members and is directed by a governing board of which Marisol is the president. The businesses that the members of the communal bank carry out are varied. Among them are: sewing, a silk-screening workshop, sewing sports clothing, sewing t-shirts, and a taxi service.

The loan that they will take out will benefit small micro-companies such as Marisol’s. She indicates that this is the first time that she has joined Pro Mujer, becoming a member through an invitation from her sister, who is a member of the institution. Currently, she has a business sewing and selling t-shirts. She learned this business many years ago from her aunts and cousins. Later, she decided to establish her own workshop, beginning with little savings and later installing more equipment.

The loan that she will now take out is for the increase of resources (the purchase of cloth) that she will acquire in the wholesale stores of the city of El Alto. Later, she will commercialize production in her sale space. This form of work allows her to generate resources to maintain her home as much as possible. She lives in an open relationship, and has a child.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the training.

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.
