The A.C. SUMA SARTAWI will begin its first cycle with Pro Mujer here as part of the Centro Juan Pablo. It has 12 members and is led by an executive committee headed by Amalia. Members of this communal bank work in various businesses, some of which are the sale of rugs, food sales, beef offal sales, creating dolls from cloth, selling sweets, selling dolls, driving, making handicraft items, weaving blankets by hand or machine, sewing baby clothes, and a general store.

Amalia tells us that this is her first cycle with Pro Mujer and that her neighbors extended an invitation. She has been in the business of selling food for the last few years, which she learned from her sister-in-law.

She is asking for this loan in order to supply her business, buying vegetables, potatoes, noodles, oil, and other items that she will buy at the market and later prepare and sell with the help of her husband. This form of work allows her income where it's possible in order to support her family, as she lives with her husband and 2 children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she said she likes the office.

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.
