The businesses that the members run are varied: sale of food, sale of elastic beds, sale of electronic appliances, sale of cream and jelly, sale of jewelry, construction services, jewel making, etc.

The loan will benefit small microentrepreneurs, Feliciana among them. She has been part of Pro Mujer for fifteen years, after being invited by a colleague who is a member of the institution. She sells food, a business that she started with her first loan from Pro Mujer. She used that loan to buy utensils and currently runs two stores.

She will use the loan to invest in capital and to buy a third retail space (purchase of a refrigerator and retail space) close to where her stores are located. She will then get the new space ready. This allows her to generate enough resources to support her household, as she is married and has six children.

When she is asked about what she likes in Pro Mujer, she says she likes the area of health and the savings.

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.
