She has been doing embroidery through machine at home for the past several years to support her family. In fact, her husband is also doing the same work at home, but he earns an insufficient income to support family, so she helps her husband in his tasks related to the embroidery.
She sells embroidery dresses in her town. By this time she has attained a regular list of customers and makes enough to contribute to the family income. She has become expert in embroidery through machine and wants more materials for embroidery so that she can cope with the increasing demand for her arts.
She hopes to get a boost in her earnings through her large sales. She wishes to use a portion of the revenue to provide a quality education for her children.

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.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
