Isabel V. M., sociologist, single mother, 1 son, member of the community bank "Mujeres Emprendedoras-Saños GranD.".
Isabel V. is a sociologist by profession and she practiced this career for a number of years. She had her only son when she was 35, and she has to raise and educate him alone as the father of her child lost interest in them and started another home.
She used to work all day and her son was looked after by a babysitter. As her son got older, he would always ask for his father despite the fact that she tried to give him all the affection he needed. But that was enough, though the affection of a father can't be replaced, and certainly not with material things.
When one of her sisters passed away, her grief was devastating and she hadn't the strength to do anything; they had been very close. This sister had left her some properties but, unfortunately, her other sisters took everything and only left her with two little rooms to live in. She did not claim anything else because it did not seem right to her to fight with her sisters.
Subsequently, she stopped working and lived only on the pension that she received. But, she had her small son in her care and he was of school age and the money did not stretch far enough. At that time, one of her sisters had a small store where she rented out dresses and suits, but this sister got the opportunity to work abroad and closed the store. Then the idea occurred to Isabel that she could reopen this store and have a bazaar, as her sister had left behind some rentable garments, cloth, and other things. So, Isabel maD. and bought more dresses, and in this way she began her business and it has been going well to date. Her wish is that the business will grow and she can expand it.

She will use the loan for business capital.

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.
