This loan will benefit these small micro-businesswomen of which Rosalía is one. Rosalía says that she joined Pro Mujer four years ago, through an invite from a loan officer who went to visit her at home. She currently has a business making 'tullmas' (woven hair accessories). She learned this business from her aunt with whom she previously worked. After she got married she decided to set up her own business.

Rosalía will take out this loan to increase her capital. She will buy yarn wholesale from stores in the city of La Paz and then, after making her hair accessories, she will sell them from her sales location. This work allows her to make income with which to support her household. Rosalía 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.
