The communal bank "Puerta del Sol" will begin its fifth loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Senkata regional center. It consists of nine members and is led by a board of directions, where Señora Margarita is the president. The businesses of the members of the communal bank are varied; among them are selling pork, selling drinking glasses, selling sheep, selling hats, making casual clothes, grocery store, weaving blankets, and selling fish.

The loan that they will take out will benefit these little microentrepreneurs, of which Señora Margarita is a member. She indicates that she became a member of Pro Mujer three years ago, joining at the invitation of a loan officer from the institution who came to visit her in her home. At this time she has a business of selling potatoes and chuño (dehydrated potatoes); she lets it be known that she began this business because she knew how to commercialize these products since she was a little girl, because she helped her mother.

The loan that she will take out now will be used to increase her capital to buy potatoes and chuño, which she will acquire in the communities surrounding the city of La Paz, and then she will sell them in her sales space. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family, since she is married and has three children.

When she is asked what she likes about Por Mujer, she responds that she likes the training that the institution offers.

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.
