The Cleveles communal bank will start its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Juan Pablo II regional office. It is comprised of six members and is run by a board of directors, which Simona heads. The businesses that the ladies are engaged in are varied and include: making macramé, selling “salchipapas” (fried potatoes and fried sausages), selling DX N products (natural health care supplements), selling sweets, and making blankets.

Simona says that this is her first year of working with Pro Mujer. She joined the institution by invitation from some neighbors. She currently has a business weaving blankets, which she has been doing for some time. She learned how to this at a club for mothers.

The loan that she will now take is to buy wool, which she will get at the fairs. She will use the wool to make products that she will later sell by order. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family. She is married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she replied that she likes the loans.

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.
