The loan that they will receive will benefit small businesses where Felipa is a member. She reports that she joined Pro Mujer a year ago after her sister-in-law, who is a member of the institution, invited her. She currently has a business weaving blankets. She learned this business when she watched her co-workers at a previous job make these products. With a small amount of capital from Pro Mujer, she began her independent business.

The loan that she will receive is to increase working capital by purchasing cuts of blankets in bulk. She will obtain these from bulk distributors in the city of El Alto and later make and sell them to order. This job allows her to earn money to support her family, since she is married with three children.

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.
