Odessa is single. To make a living, Odessa owns & operates a business venture in the retail sector operating a specialized retail store.

Odessa has been engaged in her business for over 3 years and earns approximately 8000 PHP a month for these activities.

In 2007, Odessa joined GDMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Odessa has successfully repaid a previous loan of 15000 PHP from GDMPC. Odessa is requesting a new loan of 15000 PHP which will be used to purchase additional products to sell.

Gata Daku Multi-Purpose Cooperative (GDMPC) was founded in 1992 by 32 farmer-members to empower people by providing livelihood opportunities and other support services.

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.
