This loan will benefit small entrepreneurs such as Sra. Julia. She says that she joined Pro Mujer six years ago after a friend invited her to become a member of the organization. At the moment, she has a business of making and selling clothes along the Bolivian border.

The loan she is receiving now will increase her operating capital for buying wool, which she acquires at the fairs in the city of El Alto. Afterwards, she sells what she produces along the border between Bolivia and Peru. Working in this manner enables her to generate income to support her household. Julia is married and has five children.

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.
