She is requesting a loan to buy sweets, candy hearts, chocolates, chocolate cups, and pork rinds for the Valentine season. Anselma started her business 25 years ago. Her grandmother prepared pork rinds to sell and Anselma learned from her how to make the sauce that is served with this dish. Anselma’s business is important because she is her own boss and does not rely on anyone else. She is proud to be helping her daughters with their educational expenses. Her hopes and dreams for her children including building a house so that they can avoid paying rent and helping them get into a university in order for them to pursue a profession. Anselma is pleased with the loan she will receive because she will be able to buy candy so that her business is well-stocked and successful.

The members of this group would like to tell Kiva and Fundación Realidad, “Thank you for these loans and we hope to do well. By continuing to lend to us, you help us grow in our businesses.”

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.
