She bought a stove, dishes, cutlery, pots, a frying pan, and basic kitchen equipment to establish her business. Several years earlier, she learned to cook from her aunt.


Her loan for this cycle will be used to buy food in bulk. Sra. Verónica says that she buys her food in La Ceja in the city of El Alto. The entire Communal Bank is shown in the photo along with another woman who is sharing with the group.

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.
