Elizabeth states that she joined the communal bank in Pro Mujer two and a half years ago at the invitation of a loan officer. Now she has a business making stringed instruments. She learned this trade from her husband, and she has been doing this work for 7 years.
The loan that she will take now will be used to increase her capital (to buy wood and strings.) She will buy her materials from the warehouses, and sell her instruments in the markets. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family as best she can. She is married and has one child.
When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the 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.
