Lilia is 37 years old. She studied only through secondary school. She is married to Raul, who is an agricultural worker. More than 6 years ago, a friend invited Lilia to work with her selling Mexican foods, sweets and water during recess at the primary school of their town. She accepted, since she wanted to earn a little bit of extra money, because every day the economic situation is getting worse. Thus, with her earnings, she can give a better quality of life to her family. She reports that thanks to this work opportunity, she has been able to have her own business, and she works hard to make it grow day by day.
She needs this loan to invest it in buying chiles, tomatoes, onions, meat, cabbage, cilantro, corn, cream and cheese to prepare her foods to sell, in addition to various sweets which she will also sell.
She sells her products from Monday through Friday at 11:00 a.m. She also comments that she wants her business to prosper more each day so that in the future she can pay for university studies for her children and give them the opportunity to have a better quality of life.

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.
