Since she was a little girl, Celestina P. learned to knit. Her mother taught her the craft and she never imagined how much it would help her in the future. She can proviD. for her family and she is amazed to see all that she has accomplished thanks to her traD..

Celestina started knitting beautiful sweaters for her daughters, and that's how her friends and acquaintances gained their interest, and they ask her to knit sweaters. When the orders where increasing and she noticed the interest in her products show by so many people she decided to set out and study in different state-run institutions to improve the quality of her work. She has learned how to improve the finish and as a result, even more orders are coming in for her crafts. Currently she counts on a large client base.

She is in the planning stage of making up a product catalogue with the models she has maD. and she knows she will obtain greater orders and improve her revenues. Sometimes she helps her husband to run the shop where they sell snacks and suitcases.

Thanks to her earnings she is able to proviD. her daughter with a good education - she is currently studying foreing affairs, with the idea of having an export business in the future. One step at a time she is completing her studies. Her sister lives in the US and she starrted sending her some knitted crafts for her family but her sister's idea was to advertise them and sell them.

The loan she is requesting from Edaprospo (Kiva Field Partner) will be used to purchase materials to fill an order of scarves that has been placed. In the near future Celestina would like to open a store where she can showcase and sells her crafts. She knows that with hard work she will achieve her goals.

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.
