Its members run a wide variety of businesses, including food sales, shoe making, a sewing shop, and a lubricants store.

The loan will benefit the members' small businesses, including Hilaria's. She joined Pro Mujer ten years ago at the invitation of a consultant who came to visit her at home. She currently runs a business selling food, which she learned from her mother who supports her work. She relies on the credit she took out from Pro Mujer to launch an independent business.

The loan she is currently requesting is to expand her capital through the purchase of groceries at wholesale. She will get them from the various vendors in the city of El Alto, and then after cooking, she will sell from her sales location. This work allows her to generate income to support her family, as she is single and has two children.

When asked what she liked best about Pro Mujer, she said she liked the training and the health clinic 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.
