The loan that they take will benefit small microbusinesses where Eulogia is a member. She says that it has been two years since she joined Pro Mujer, joining by invitation of a friend that is a member of the institution. Today she has a business of knitting and selling hats. She says that she started this business by observing this product is one of the highest selling products in the international market, and it is for that that with little capital she decided to establish her own knitting workshop.

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.
