Rosa says that this is the first time she has taken part in a community bank and that she currently has a neighborhood store business which she has been working in for years. She learned the business from her mom. She will use this loan to expand her range of merchandise (buying food products). She will buy these products in the city of El Alto and then sell them from her sales premises which are located in her community. This work enables her to support her family. Rosa is single and has one child.

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.
