The communal association 'Imperial' is starting their first cycle with 'Pro Mujer', as a part of the larger group 'Santiago II'. The group is made up of seven members and is lead by a board of directors, in which Eulalia is the treasurer. The businesses that the members of the communal association are involved with are varied and include: sewing skirts and petticoats, selling food, selling woven products, selling snacks, weaving sweaters, a weaving shop, making popcorn and weaving cloth.

Eulalia told us that it is the first time that she has worked with 'Pro Mujer' and that she joined the organization voluntarily. She has a business where she sews skirts and petticoats. She has been working in this for some time now. She learned how to do this work in a training institute.

The loan that she is taking out now is to increase her capital to buy fabrics and ribbons. She will buy her supplies and later after making her products will sell them in her commercial space. This small business allows her to make income to help support her family. She is a single mother of two children.

When we asked her what she likes most about 'Pro Mujer', she said she likes the trainings about savings.

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.
