Gimena tells us that this is the first loan cycle that she has participated in with Pro Mujer. She joined through an invitation. Gimena currently has a business knitting blankets. She started the business one year ago. She used to knit for other people and then decided to start her own business.

Gimena will use this loan to buy yarn for knitting blankets. She will buy her supplies in the street market in Alto Lima. When her products are made, she will sell them to customers on request. This work allows her to make money to support her family. She is single and has two children.

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.
