Irene started at the invitation of a friend and has worked with Pro Mujer for 8 years. She has a business selling shoes where she has worked for 23 years, having learned the trade from her family.

The loan that she will take out is to increase her capital by purchasing sheets of leather on Max Paredes street which she will later make into shoes and sell in the 16 de Julio market on Thursdays and Sundays. This work has allowed her to generate income to support her family. She is married and has 5 children.

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.
