Sandra is a woman and a mother, with two children who depend on her. Thinking of her family, and how she could support her household finances, and so provide a better quality of life to her family members, she decided to set up a food stand outside her home.

This idea originated from her friends and neighbors commenting at parties and gatherings that her food had a delicious flavor. These comments motivated her to launch her business.

In the beginning, she had doubts about it working, and more because of the competition, but little by little, her clientele has grown. Now she is asking for a loan to be able to return the gas tank that was lent to her to get the business going, and to repair the grill that she started with.

She has put all of her will and her hopes into this business, as she wishes to offer her children a better present.

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.
