The businesses that the partners of the communal bank conduct are various, among which are: sales of furniture, sales of hats, sewing sports clothing, sales of orange juice, carpentry workshop, sales of fish, and food sales.
The loan they are seeking will benefit small microenterprises of which Hortencia is a partner. She says that ten years ago she joined Pro Mujer, coming in at the invitation of a friend who is a client of the institution. Today she has a carpentry workshop business. She would like it to be known that she learned this business from her husband who used to make these products when he was single. When they married, she decided to start her workshop independently.
The loan she will take out now is to increase her capital (purchase of wood wholesale) which she will get from the stalls in the city of El Alto and after the production she will market it to the customer's specifications. This kind of work permits her to generate resources to help her family given that she is married and has three children.
When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the training and the health area that the institution offers.

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.
