The “LAS PALMERAS” group will start their first loan cycle in Pro Mujer, as a part of the Panamericana Focal Center. This group has 6 members and is headed by a board of directors with Ms. Juana as the treasurer. The women have a variety of businesses. Among them are: blanket weaving, amautas and chiflera (natural healing), telephone answering service, operating a diner, making handcrafted sweaters, and selling candles.

Juana said that this is the first time she has worked in Pro Mujer and that she joined the institution by invitation. Currently she owns a business selling food, which she learned from her family and has done for years.

The loan that she will take out will be used to grow her capital (to buy supplies) which she will acquire from Ceja. Subsequent to the development, she will commercialize her sales post. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family, as she is tired and has three children.

When she was asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, her response was that she enjoys the meetings.

Ms. Raquel is not pictured because she had to go quickly due to an emergency situation.

El crédito que ahora sacará es para aumentar su capital (compra de viveres) que adquiere de la Ceja y posteriormente a la elaboración lo comercializará en su puesto de venta. Esta forma de trabajo le permite generar recursos para apoyar a su familia, pues ella es casada y tiene tres hijos.

Cuando se le consulta qué le gusta de Pro Mujer, ella responde que le gusta las reuniones.

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.
