Medelinne says that she has been a member of Pro Mujer for six months. She joined through an invitation from another member. She currently has a neighborhood store that she has run for three years. She learned the business from her sister-in-law.
Medelinne will use the loan that she is taking out to buy more merchandise (oil, rice, noodles, etc.). She will buy these products from wholesalers in her town. She will then re-sell them in her store. This work allows Medelinne to make income to support her family. She lives with her partner and has two children.
When we asked her what she likes about Pro Mujer, Medelinne replied that she likes the health training.

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.
