This group is composed of eight members and is led by a board of directors headed by Ignacia. The businesses that the members of the association are engaged in vary between them and include: the sale of fruit, colognes and perfumes, quilts, detergents, hand woven sweaters, sodas and gelatin, vegetables, and the sale of meat.

Ignacia, explains that she has worked with Pro Mujer for twenty-two years, entering the group at the invitation of a promoter. Currently, she has a business growing and selling fruit.

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.
