She has always wanted to work on her own and it was a friend who encouraged her to lease a workshop in a central location. This allowed her to earn additional income and improve her quality of life. Her husband bought her first sewing machine (basic), which she still keeps as a memento.
Nelly began making dresses and skirts. Her neighbors knew that she was a seamstress and it was they who recommended her services to their friends. She began to increase her income little by little, completed her studies, and over time began buying more fabrics and thread with the loans she received.
She had the opportunity to become well known in the various schools, where she maD. uniforms for teachers, but it became necessary for her to acquire a chain stitch sewing machine. For this reason she approached Edaprospo-Prosperidad to request a loan in order to buy the machine. Things went well for her and she began making wedding gowns and formals. This generated additional income for her.
She did a good job managing her business and was able to buy more machines and the income provided her the means with which to pay for her three children’s education. They have all achieved professional careers. She was also able to buy her own workshop in a central location and no longer offers her services to private institutions because her business is doing very well. The income she now earns is for herself and for her husband, and to treat her grandchildren.
Nelly will use the money from this loan to buy fabric because she has orders for dresses for the Peruvian Independence Day. It makes her feel good to have achieved most of her goals and to continue to be able to support her family by running the business she enjoys; dressmaking.

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.
