She says that her biggest challenge is to have savings so that if her grown children need something, she could proviD. it and have a better living standard. This is her first loan with Esperanza.

Juana has had her business for almost two years. Using some savings she started selling fried food and now she has a Pica Pollo (fried chicken restaurant), where the principal dish is chicken with fried plantains or potatoes. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business by buying many pounds of chicken, plantains, potatoes and cooking oil. Also she will purchase chairs and tables. She will use the profits to save and reinvest in her business.

Her group is located in the urban slums surrounding Santo Domingo and is composed of 10 people.

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.
