Leticia is 39 years old and a member of the Izleta solidarity group. She is married and has two daughters. Her husband works in agriculture. They are a very hardworking and united family. They live in the Sonaguera community in Colon.

Leticia works selling food, an activity that she has done for ten years and that she learned from her mother. She works from 8:00am to 3:00pm and 6:00pm to 9:00pm. The advantage that she has is that she makes home deliveries and has contracts with some community events. Some of the difficulties she faces are that she does not have a store for her business so she works out of her house, which is far from the center of town.

With this loan, Leticia will purchase ingredients for the food she makes, such as meats, chicken, beans, butter, rice, bananas, sausage, vegetables, and more. With the help provided by this loan, she will be able to provide better service to her customers since she will be able to offer them everything they need.

Her goal is to establish a store that is more accessible to her customers in the center of the community. This is her first loan with FAMA and she hopes to meet her payments on time.

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.
