Evelin says that this is her first time working with Pro Mujer, and that she joined the organization after a friend invited her. Her current business is making and selling hats, which she has done for years.
She is going to use the loan to increase her capital by purchasing additional hats, which she will buy in the Ceja neighborhood of El Alto and then sell at her stand. This type of work allows her to earn the resources she needs to support her family. She has one child and lives in a common-law marriage.
When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Evelin said she likes the training the organization provides.

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.
