Felicia Lourdes P. M., 46 years old, has two children and is the president of this group, "Virgen del Rosario." She cares for one of her children, who is still in school. The eldest of her children already has a family and works independently. Felicia lives with her partner, Piter R. Porras. They began this business over 26 years ago and operates it all the way to the Andean plateaus where the maca root grows. Felicia bought this product in order to resell them at local markets. Beforehand, the idea of making maca root flour was suggested because the product would sell at a higher price. The process of making maca root flour is to dry the product under the sun, turning the maca from time to time. Afterwards, they are crushed by hand using an artisan grinder; the result of which is maca root flour. She has a great desire to overcome obstacles, as such she is now thinking of using the same process to make carrot flour. She plans to use the loan that she is requesting to purchase maca root to dehydrate.

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.
