Sra. Pascuala said that she joined Pro Mujer 1½ years ago after receiving an invitation from her neighbors. She currently has a business selling fruits and rice that she has managed for 10 years. Pascuala learned this trade from one of her cousins.
The loan she is receiving now will be used to increase her inventory of fruits and rice. These products are harvested by the hectare in Los Yungas and then sold at her vending post. Working in this manner has enabled her to generate income to support her family as much as possible. Pascuala is married and has five children.
When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Pascuala said that she enjoys sharing with the group and participating in the health seminars.
La señora Pascuala indica que hace un año y medio que integra Pro Mujer por invitación de sus vecinas. En la actualidad ella tiene un negocio de venta de frutas y de arroz que trabaja hace diez años, aprendiendo el mismo de una de sus primas.
El crédito que ahora sacará es para aumentar su mercadería (compra de fruta y arroz), que cosechará de su ectaria en los Yungas y posteriormente lo comercializa en el puesto de venta. Esta forma de trabajo le permite generar recursos para apoyar en lo posible a su familia, pues ella es casada y tiene y tiene cinco hijos.
Cuando se le consulta qué le gusta de Pro Mujer, ella responde que le gusta compartir con el grupo y la capacitación de salud.
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.
