Sra. Cristina says that she is participating in her second loan cycle with Pro Mujer. She was invited to join as a result of a door-to-door campaign. At the moment, she has a business selling light bulbs which she started 15 years ago. She learned this trade from her parents.
Cristina will use her current loan to buy light bulbs to add to her inventory. She acquires her merchandise in bulk at “El Desaguadero” (the region along the border between Bolivia and Peru). Cristina sells her products every day at the January 8th Annex and at the July 16th Fair. Working in this manner allows her to generate income to support her family. Cristina is in a common law marriage and has four children.
When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Cristina said that she enjoys the health seminars.

Esta forma de trabajo le permite generar recursos para apoyar en lo posible a su familia, pues ella vive en unión libre y tiene cuatro hijos.

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.
