This loan will benefit small business owners such as Amalia. She says that this is the first time she has worked with Pro Mujer, which she joined by the invitation of one of the institution's consultants who visited her at home. She currently has an artisan crafts business, making "chicotes" (Andean whips). She says that she learned about this business years ago from one of her uncles, who worked in this field.

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.
