Asunta tells us that she has been a member of a Pro Mujer community bank for twelve years. She joined through an invitation from a friend. She currently has a neighborhood store where she has been working for years.

Asunta will use this loan to increase her capital (buying noodles, oil, sugar, etc.) She will buy her products in La Ceja and then sell them from her sales premises. This work allows her to make the money she needs to support her family. She is married and has three 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.
