All of the members of this group want to improve their quality of life through these loans, and to do this they must increase their incomes. All of the members of this group know each other, because they live in the same neighborhood.

Patricia is requesting this loan in order to buy supplies for her handicraft business. Right now, she is making keychains with wool. This is a new product that she will be offering for sale.
