Felicita is 57 years old and happily married to Ignacio who is an employee in a hardware store in their community. The couple have six children, though they currently only live with one of their daughters. They also have a granddaughter who is in the third year of pre-school. Her name is Alma and she is 5 years old.

Felicita is a saleswoman. She sells bread and has been in this business for 25 years. She says that she only sells to order and makes her bread every three days. One of her goals is to be able to set up a business in the town market and have assistants because sometimes the business demands more than she can manage on account of her age. Felicita is planning to use her loan to buy more supplies for making bread (flour, sugar, firewood, butter, etc.)

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.
