The "ASMICRA" communal bank will be starting its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Villa Tejada centre. It is made up of eight members and is run by a board of directors of which Dora is the Secretary. The businesses which the members of the communal association run are varied and among them are: making schoolbags, selling food, selling sweets, selling dairy products, mechanic's workshop and an electrical appliance repair shop.

The loan they will take out will benefit small businesswomen of which Dora is an example. She says she joined Pro Mujer a year ago after being invited by a friend who is a member of the institution. Currently she has a business sewing and selling rucksacks. She says she learnt this business from helping her parents in their workshop and later decided to set up her own independent work space where she now works.

The loan she will take out is to increase capital to buy fabric which she will buy from the wholesale stores in the city of El Alto and to make the rucksacks to sell in her shop. This kind of work allows her to generate income to maintain her family as much as possible, since she is divorced and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says she likes the health centre.

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.
