Roberta sells food every Sunday on the 'feria D. animales' (animal market) stop on the "No. 6" bus route. The other days of the week, she embroiders belts, tapestries and bags.
Roberta will invest the loan she is requesting in buying supplies for preparing her meals. Roberta likes her community bank meetings because they receive training which helps them to make progress, they receive loans and they are able to save. Her dream is for her children to be able to study and for her business to grow.

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.
