Edith sells oil, coffee, sugar, milk, snack foods, cookies, toilet paper, soft drinks, and juices. She says that she started her business by purchasing a little bit of merchandise.

Nos cuenta que inicio su negocio comprando poca mercancía pero con sus ganancias fue comprando más y más hasta que logro tener su pequeña tienda de abarrotes.
Uno de sus sueños es engrandecer más su tienda de abarrotes y poner una papelería ya que solamente vende libretas, lápices y borradores y sus clientes le piden que pongan una papelería ya que el pueblo es muy pequeño y no hay papelerías.
Ella pidió el crédito para la compra de más mercancía de abarrotes y mercancía de papelería para la venta por menudeo.

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.
