The communal bank “Mendez” is starting its 17th cycle in group Pro Mujer as part of the regional offices in German Busch. It is made up of eight members and has a board of directors, of which Margarita is the president. The various businesses that its members have include making gaiters, polleras (big one-piece skirts) and women´s slips; and also selling domestic medicines, fish, bathing costumes and accessories for cell phones.

The loan they are asking for will benefit the small-time businesses such as the one Margarita has. She started in the group after a friend invited her to join five years ago. Currently, she has a business selling food which she set up on her own initiative after seeing that there was a big market for this product.

She is asking for a loan to buy chickens and vegetables wholesale which she will buy off the traders and then sell at her point of sale. This work allows her to generate an income to support her family. She is married with five children.

When asked what she most likes about Pro Mujer, she tells us that it is the health service and the training that the institution offers.

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.
