Mrs. Victoria says this is her seventh loan with Pro Mujer; she joined the group by her friend’s invitation. At present she has a business selling blankets that she started with her aunt.
The loan will be used to increase her stock (by buying blankets) by buying in the city of Oruro and selling the items during the weekend fairs. This trade allows her to have enough income to support her family as much as possible since she is married and has three children.
When asked what she enjoys of Pro Mujer, Mrs. Victoria says that she enjoys the attention and the training.
La señora Victoria, indica que este es el séptimo año que trabaja con Pro Mujer, ingresando por invitación de su comadre. En la actualidad ella tiene un negocio de venta de frazadas, que inicio conjuntamente su tía.
El crédito que ahora sacará es para aumentar su capital (compra de frazadas), que comprara de la ciudad de Oruro y los venderán en las ferias de fin de semana. Esta forma de trabajo le permite generar recursos para apoyar en lo posible 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 la atención y las capacitaciones.
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.
