Nuevo Arco Iris Group
Hilda indicates that she’s been working with Pro Mujer for 11 years having joined thanks to an invitation from a friend. She currently has a business selling books that she started thanks to her older sister who is in the same business. She’s been in business for nine years.
The loan she’s taking out now will be used to buy books: books, fables, coloring books, that she’ll buy in Desaguadero and also at wholesale in large stores in La Ceja as well as others that are delivered to her stand. She then will sell them on Tiwanacu Street (El Alto’s commercial street) every day from 3-9pm. This way of working allows her to generate income to help her family in whatever way possible because she lives in an unmarried relationship state and has five children.
When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the training, the health services and business.

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.
