The loan that they will take out will benefit small business owners such as the member Nora. She says that she has been a part of Pro Mujer for 1 year, joining by an invitation from a consultant of the institution who went to visit her at her home. Currently, she has a business making and selling cheese; she says that she acquired this business from her parents several years ago.

She raises the cattle and makes cheese, which she sells in her place of business. This form of work allows her to generate resources to maintain her home as best as possible since she is married and has two daughters.

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.
