Rosalía, 43, only has a second grade education. She is married to Eduardo who is a wage earner. They have two children, Crisanta, 19, and Eduarda, 13, who are in high school.

Rosalía says she started her own soft drink business two years ago, out of her home, since she wanted to help her husband with the household expenses and to give her daughter an education. She claims that business has grown little by little, and what was once a soft drink business has now become a small grocery store. Her house is located on a road that has many travelers who stop for refreshments; so this increases her sales volume. What Rosalía enjoys most about her business is that she can work without neglecting her family.

She will use the loan to buy soft drinks, cookies, toilet tissue, soap, bleach, juices, rice, beans, sweets, eggs, sugar, salt and soups. She hopes this investment will help her business grow and increase her profits so she can pay for her daughter's university studies.

This group is grateful to the foundation for the support through the loan.

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.
