The "FORTALEZA DE ADELITA" communal association will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de German Busch [German Busch Regional Office]. The group is composed of six members and is directed by an executive board of which Señora Adela is the president. The community association members carry out a variety of businesses, among them are: selling casual outfits, sewing casual outfits, weaving casual outfits, weaving turtlenecks, weaving sweaters.

The loan that they take out will benefit the group of small businesswomen that Señora Adela is a member of. She says she has been a member of Pro Mujer for eight years, joining through the invitation of a niece who is a member of the group. At present she has a business selling gelatins [Jell-O]. She reports that she undertook this business on her own initiative one year ago.

The loan that she will take out now is to increase her capital (purchase of gelatin), which she will acquire wholesale from distributors and after preparation will sell as a mobile vendor at local fairs. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family, as she lives in a common-law relationship and has five children.

When she is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes sharing with her friends.

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.
