Gladys is one of the micro entrepreneurs forming this group, and she will benefit from the requested loan. She says this is the sixth cycle she has been working with Pro Mujer, and that she had been invited by a friend who is a member of the institution. She is currently running a clothes shop, and she says she has started this activity out of her own initiative tanks to the first loan she has received form Pro Mujer.
The loan she is now requesting will be used to increase her working capital by buying clothes at wholesale price in the fairs of the town of La Paz, to then sell them in her stall. This type of activity helps her earning an income to economically support her household as much as she can, as she is single and she has three children.
When asked about what she likes of Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the loan, the seminars and the health program.

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.
