At 33 years of age, she has a great desire let her community and all the visitors know about the activity she engages in with so much effort and dedication. She is married and lives with her husband, and has a desire to succeed and has big dreams that she wishes to achieve in life. She has four children that are students at the community school. (She is wearing a blue blouse with squares and is first in the row from right to left).

The work she performs with so much care is buying and selling traditional clothing. She carries out this activity in her home, and in places near the community where she lives. The second activity she is engaged in is selling thread, an activity she has been sharing with a sister for more than three years because it generates profits for the welfare of her family and improves her family’s financial conditions and those of the community as well.

She has been an example in her community and, for this reason, a group of women have joined with Manuela to be able to establish their businesses so that each one may succeed and have significant incomes. She will use the loan she is applying for to purchase merchandise, traditional styles, for later respective sale in the surrounding areas. One of her aspirations is to have a sales location in the community market.

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.
