La A.C. “LAS TEJEDORAS” iniciará su primer ciclo en Pro Mujer, como parte del Centro Juan Pablo, está compuesta por catorce integrantes y está dirigida por una mesa directiva encabezada por la señora Leandra.

La señora Lenadra indica que es la primera vez que trabaja con Pro Mujer, ingresando por invitación de promoción. En la actualidad ella tiene un negocio de tienda de barrio, que viene trabajando hace cinco años atrás.

El crédito que ahora sacará es para aumentar su capital (compra de refrescos, cerveza, aceite, arroz, fideos), que consiguieran por mayor de la Ceja y los venderá en su tienda todos los días. Esta forma de trabajo le permite generar recursos para apoyar en lo posible a su familia, pues ella vive en concubinato y tiene una hija.

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.
