The loan they are taking out will benefit small microentrepreneurs. Marisol is a member of this group and says she joined Pro Mujer five years ago through a friend and fellow member of the institution who invited her. She currently has a neighborhood store and tells us she decided to start her business several years ago on her own initiative.

The loan she is currently taking out is to increase capital by purchasing rice, oil, and flour from distributing companies so that she can later sell them at her business location. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her family as far as possible, since she is in a common-law marriage and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says she enjoys the trainings regarding loans and health.

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.
