The loan they're taking out will benefit a variety of small businesses, including the one that Rosalía is a part of. She tells us that she joined Pro Mujer three years ago, becoming interested through a representative who came to visit her at home. Currently, she weaves sweaters, which she says she learned to make from her mother who used to knit at home, slowly but surely building her own small weaving business.
The loan she's taking out now is to increase her working capital by buying wool from the markets in the city of El Alto. After production, she sells her sweaters by the dozen. This line of work allows her to support her home as much as she can, as she is married and has three children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she said she likes the savings and group lending.

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.
