The loan that they will take out will benefit small business owners with different trades, where Catalina is a member. She says that it has been 30 years since she joined Pro Mujer, joining on the invitation of a family member who is also a member. She currently has a business selling food, something she learned in her previous work as a domestic employee. After leaving that work, she decided to start her own business using her skills in the kitchen.

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.
