Dude, I think you're going to need to explain the concept.  I seriously doubt that anyone is going to understand what is meant by "purchasing pool".  It's not enough to find a catchy term for it.  What good is that going to do if people aren't used to it?  You can call a viola caipira a ten string guitar.  Is it?  Well, not exactly, but it's close enough to a ten string guitar for an American to understand what you're talking about.  And just what do you call a berimbau in English?  Again, I'm unaware of the concept of "consórcio" existing in the USA.  I think you're going to have to explain it.
