For 20 years she has worked making clothing, designing with various fabrics and colors, making her best styles, and practicing her techniques on a variety of garments that she makes. Rosa learned sewing when she worked in a "maquila" [foreign-owned factory]. She learned very well and in time decided to open her own small tailor shop. She works from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.
With the help of this loan she's going to buy different types and colors of fabric to make different types of garment. With the help of this loan she'll be able to have enough capital to be able to buy all the accessories she needs to make her garments.
This is the second loan Rosa has requested from FAMA and she has made her payments punctually.

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.
