This loan is her first of a sequence within the institution. Zulema is going to use the loan to buy merchandise such as comforters and blankets to stock a variety of products. Her reason for asking for a loan is because she doesn't have the savings right now. Zulema has challenges in her business as the cold season is rather strong in the area where she lives and she has to go offer the merchandise and this is a slight disadvantage, but nonetheless she leaves during the early morning hours and is going to use the funds to buy comforters, blankets, and articles that will provide warmth for the season in which we find ourselves.

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.
