This loan will benefit small entrepreneurs such as Sra. Quintina. She says that this is the first time she has joined Pro Mujer after receiving an invitation from a friend who is also a member of the organization. Quintina currently has a business where she makes handicrafts out of wool and fabric. She started her business several years ago through her own initiative. Upon learning her techniques, she was able to open her workshop with a small amount of savings.

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.
