This loan will benefit micro businesses such as Asunta's. She said this is her first participation in Pro Mujer, which she joined after an associate of the institution visited her house. She learned her business, selling food, several years ago on her own. She will use this loan to buy potatoes at local fairs to use in the food she makes in her shop.

This work lets her earn money to pay household expenses, as she is married and has six children. She said she likes that Pro Mujer provides funding without undue hassles.

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.
