The bank is made up of 7 members and is headed by a board of directors, with Magdalena as director.

The loan will benefit various small microbusinesses where Magdalena is a member. She indicates that she has been a member of Pro Mujer for a year and a half, joining by invitation of a friend who is a member of the institution. She currently has a business sewing and selling blankets, a trade she has worked in for years having learnt from her mother-in-law.

The loan that she is now taking out is to raise her capital (to buy wool) that she will get from wholesalers and later she will make and sell them in her sales location.

This type of work allows her to generate an income to support her family as she lives with a partner and has three children.

When she asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the training in finance and health.

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.
