El crédito que ahora sacará es para aumentar su mercadería (compra de lanas) que adquirirá de la Paz y posteriormente lo comercializará en las ferias. Esta forma de trabajo le permite generar recursos para apoyar en lo posible a su familia, pues ella vive en concubinato y tiene un hijo.

Cuando se le consulta qué le gusta de Pro Mujer, ella responde que le gusta la capacitación.

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.
