Silveria tells us that she's been working with Pro Mujer for eight years and that she joined the institution after being invited by their adviser. She currently has a business selling food that she's had for years.
The loan she is taking out now is to increase her capital to buy canned food in la Ceja that she will later sell at her stand. This way of working allows her to generate income to support her family, as she is married with three children.
When asked what it is she likes about Pro Mujer, she told us that she likes the training sessions and the health area.

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.
