The loan they are seeking will benefit small businesswomen such as Sra. Marisol.

She currently runs a business selling clothing, after learning about sales some years ago. As time passed and with a small amount of capital she started her own business.

The loan Marisol is now seeking will be used to buy clothing in bulk from the merchants in the town of El Alto and then resell to her customers. The income she earns will enable her to support her family as she is single and has a son.

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.
