Sra. Lola says that this is the first time she has worked with Pro Mujer after receiving an invitation at a promotional event. She currently has a business selling food and Bolivian tamales. Lola started her business ten years ago.
The loan she is receiving now will be used to increase her capital so that she can buy soft drinks, beer, and supplies for preparing her dishes. She acquires her supplies in bulk in the neighborhood of La Ceja and at El Puente Vela (a commercial area in the city of El Alto). Lola sells her dishes Monday through Saturday at the No. 692 Minibus Stop. By working in this manner, she is able to generate income to support her family as much as possible. Lola is married and has four children.
When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Lola said that she enjoys the continuing education seminars and the basic health services.

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.
