Señora Mery is the secretary of the board of directors.

The loan they are taking out will benefit the small micro-entrepreneurs, of which Señora Mery is one. She says that she joined Pro Mujer one year ago at the invitation of her friend, who is a member of the institution. Señora Mery currently has a business selling clothing. She says that she started her business when she was motivated by some friends a few years ago.

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.
