The businesses of the members of the communal bank are varied and include: the sale of breads, food, candies, textiles, meats, potatoes, and potato starch.

The loan that they are taking out will benefit the business women with whom Elizabeth is a member. This is the first time she has been part of Pro Mujer, and she invited the other women to join her. Elizabeth sells cheese and milk, a business she learned from her mother, and continues because it generates good compensation. She will use the loan to increase her capital (buying cattle) that she will purchase from nearby communities, and after raising the cattle, she will sell the products in the markets of the city of El Alto"

Her business has allowed her to generate resources to maintain her home as she is single and has a son. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Elizabeth responds that she likes the training they give about health.

Additional Information

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.
