The communal association "Con Suerte" ("With Luck") will begin its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de Patacamata. It is made up of eleven members and led by a board of directors, of which Rosmery is the president. Members of the association maintain a variety of different businesses. Among them we have: buying and selling potatoes and potato flour, selling beer and sodas, selling food, a neighborhood store, transportation, upholstery, and buying and selling sheep.

The loan that they will take out will benefit small microbusinesses, including Rosmery's. She indicates that she has been a member of Pro Mujer for the past three years, joining by invitation from a promoter of the institution who came to visit her home. She currently has a food sales business. The loan she received in her first loan cycle helped her start her business by her own initiative.

The loan that she will take out now is to continue expanding her business. She will use it to buy noodles, rice, oil, etc., which she will purchase from wholesale distributors. After preparing the food, she will sell it at markets in her community. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family—as much as she can—since she is single and has one son.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Rosmery responded that she likes the health training.

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.
