The loan benefits micro businesses such as the one Zulema is part of. She says she joined Pro Mujer three years ago when a representative of the institution visited her home. She now sells small appliances, a business she started some years ago by selling cables and light bulbs as a street vendor. Later she purchased appliances on the advice of friends.

This work lets her earn income to support her family. She is married and has three children. When asked what she liked about Pro Mujer, she said she liked the health center.

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.
