They have different lines of work which range from weaving clothing, to baking bread, to making furniture, clothing sales, bags, and sales of prepared meals. They need financing to increase their working capital, some to buy merchandise, others to get work supplies. Since they are long-standing clients, they like to come to the health center for general check-ups, specifically the Papanicolau test. They also bring their children in for weight and height monitoring.

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.
