The loan they will take out will benefit the micro-businesswomen, including Soledad. She says that this is the first time she has been a member of Pro Mujer. She joined at the invitation of a counselor from the institution that visited her house. Right now, she has a business selling salchipapa (a traditional food). She says that she learned this business several years ago when she saw the need the customers had to have a place that sold food.

The loan she will take out now is to increase capital by buying potatoes and meat wholesale. She will acquire it from the wholesalers in the city of La Paz. After preparing the food, she will sell it in her sales space. This work allows her to generate resources to support her family, since she is single and has a son.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the savings that the group does.

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.
