Ofelia sells snacks,
Reyna sell perfumes,
Eugenia sell snacks,
Dulce Maria has a repair shop.

Maria Isabel is 36 years old, has a high school education and is married to Mr. Gregorio with whom she has two children. She says that from a young age her parents taught her to work hard so that she could get ahead and help her husband with the expenses of the home and this way provide a better life for her children.

Doña Maria Isabel opened a small grocery store in her home 10 years ago. This has given her the opportunity to work and earn her own money. What she most enjoys of her business is dealing with people on a daily basis and being able to provide a service to her community. She opens her business every day from eight in the morning and until her last customer leaves. In her store, she sells some groceries, refreshments and sweets.

She will invest this loan in the purchase of cooking oil, canned food, beans, rice, beverages,candies, snacks, cakes, crackers,salt, sugar, mayonnaise, soap and bleach to better supply her store.

She hopes that with this investment her business will continue to prosper and her income will grow and in the future her daughters will be able to get a better education.

"Thank you for the loan that was given to my whole group. This helps us very much in our businesses."

Additional Information

Concurrent and Successive Loans

Our Field Partners often work with borrowers over a series of loans as the borrowers build credit, take out bigger loans, and expand their businesses. In order to make it easier for our Field Partners to post loans for borrowers who have been listed on Kiva before, we allow them to post successive and concurrent loans for their Kiva borrowers. This means that our Field Partners are able to post a borrower's second, third, etc., loan on Kiva without having to re-enter all of the borrower's information.

This borrower has been listed on Kiva before, so you'll see an updated loan description, as well as excerpts of the original descriptions from earlier loans. Most borrowers take out loans consecutively, meaning that they receive a second loan after having repaid the first. However, sometimes our Field Partners give out concurrent loans, allowing borrowers to take out one primary loan and a secondary "add-on" loan along with it. These "add-on" loans are typically smaller than the borrower's primary loan and serve a different purpose. Because Field Partners can now post loans as successive and concurrent loans, you will be able to track borrower progress over time and see the various ways a borrower is working with our Field Partners through funds from Kiva’s lenders.

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.
