Lesbia requests this loan to invest in the purchase of products such as: lard, cold cuts, chicken, refreshments, sugar, beans, rice, among others. The challenges Lesbia faces in her business are due to the fact that food staples are more expensive every day and people aren’t buying like they used to. The business will change with the loan because she will have a greater variety of products and that way will sell more. Lesbia’s goals are to help her son get ahead, to make her business larger and more productive one day, and to have a better standard of living. This is the third loan she requests with FAMA, and she has complied with her payments punctually.

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.
