Sra. Maria says that this is the first time she has worked with Pro Mujer. She joined after a door-to-door campaign. She has operated a business making and selling blankets for fifteen years.
She will use the loan to buy the supplies she needs to operate the business (materials for making blankets). She plans to buy bulk supplies of everything she needs on Calle Rodriguez (a commercial area of La Paz) and make blankets to order. The business provides her with a means to help her husband with their daily expenses.
When we asked her what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answered that she likes working with a team.
La señora Maria indica que es la primera vez que trabaja con Pro Mujer, ingresando por invitación de promoción puerta a puerta. En la actualidad ella tiene un negocio de trenzado de mantas, que inicio hace quince años.
El crédito que ahora sacará es para aumentar su capital (compra de material para el trenzado de mantas), que consiguieran por mayor de la calle Rodríguez (lugar comercial de la ciudad de La Paz) y los venderá a pedido.. Esta forma de trabajo le permite generar recursos para apoyar en lo posible a su familia, pues ella es casada.
Cuando se le consulta qué le gusta de Pro Mujer, ella responde que le gusta trabajar en grupo.
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.
