She joined by invitation from a consultant from the institution who visited her at home. Her current business is selling clothing and she started it with merchandise she bought with loans through Pro Mujer.

The loan she is requesting now is to buy clothing at wholesale markets so she can sell it at her stall. This means of income allows her to generate resources to maintain her household. She is married and has nine children.

When asked what she likes most about Pro Mujer, she says it is the credit, training and health area.

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.
