Feliza G. M. is 42 years old. She didn't have the opportunity to go to school. She has six children who do not attend school. Feliza is a cleaner and also a saleswoman. She has five years experience selling new clothes. She started out with a street stall and currently has a business selling clothes on the street. In the future, she would like to own her own premises.

Feliza decided to get together a group in order to request loans which would serve as working capital to buy clothes to resell such as socks, scarves, sweaters, sweatshirts, underwear, etc. The other members of the group raise animals and the group's coordinator is a saleswoman. They hope that their loans will enable them to improve their businesses and their profits.

About Asociación ASDIR

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.
