Ana Luisa says that a little less than a year ago she opened a small convenience store in her home with the support of her husband in order to earn extra income and help him with household expenses and their children's education. She works every day out of her home, opening her store at 8 a.m. and closing at 8 p.m., and she enjoys having a well-stocked store so her customers can always find what they're looking for. She plans to invest this loan in the purchase of beans, rice, oil, cookies, candy, soup, drinks, cheese, cream, milk, salt, sugar, ham and canned goods to restock her business. She hopes that with this investment her business will attract more customers and she can continue growing her store.

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.
