Olga is the leader of the community bank "Los Pinos". She is married and she is the mother of three children. Four years ago her mother taught her how to knight sweaters and baby clothes by hand. She has kept up the business because she is able to work from home. She is therefore able to do the household chores and she can also take care of her kids. She sells her products in the market called 16 de Julio, on Thursdays and Sundays. But she also travels to Desaguadero, a nearby location that is near the border of the neighboring country of Peru.

Additional Information

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.
