The businesses that the members have include selling underwear, CDs, bed sheets and vests, in addition to a beauty salon.

This loan will benefit the small businesses such as the one Remedios has. She started with the group five years ago after a friend invited her to join. Currently, she has a business making sportswear. She learnt this trade because she used to work in a sewing business and learnt how to do it. For that reason, she decided to start her own business.

The loan she is asking for is to buy cloth wholesale which she will buy from the traders in the city and later sell in to order at educational institutions. This work allows her to generate an income to support her family; she is married and has five children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she tells us that it is the health service 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.
