The “Las Rosas de San Salvador” (San Salvador’s Roses) will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Adela Focal Center. It has six members led by a governing board presided over by Lucia.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit small micro businesswomen one of which is Lucia. She indicates that this is the first time she’s been part of Pro Mujer having joined thanks to an invitation from a girlfriend who’s a member of the institution. She currently has a business sewing shirts. She relates that she learned this business from her mother years ago and decided to set up her own workshop.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital. She will buy fabric from wholesalers and after she makes them will sell to order. This way of working makes it possible for her to support her home the best way possible since she’s single and has two children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the health training and the credit.

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.
