She has been in the business of making hand-woven blankets for many years, and she lives in the neighborhood of Barrio Municipal.

This loan is her first one with the lending partner, and Teodosia will use the funds to buy construction materials for constructing a new room in her house. Her reason for asking for this loan is that she lacks money to buy the construction materials herself. Teodosia wants to eventually open a shop of her own to show her woven goods, since she currently takes them to many different markets around the city and in her own neighborhood, and she will use the benefits to improve her family's quality of life.

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
