Teresa is 59 years old. She only completed primary school and she lives alone, since her children are already married. She started working as a very young child, and through much effort she managed to raise her children. Currently she sells traditional corn-based Mexican dishes on the weekends (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) at a small corridor that she built in front of her home. During the week she also brings out a variety of sweets and pork rinds to sell.

She has been doing this for four years, so the people in town already know her and they also mention she is a very gifted cook, which helps her attract more customers.

Teresa will use this loan to purchase chiles, tomatoes, onions, meat, potatoes, eggs, tortillas, corn, cheese, cream, lettuce, beans, oil, soft drinks, and assorted sweets. She expects her business to prosper from this investment so that she can have a better life.

She belongs to 15 de Junio, which comprises eleven members and is located in the community of Tetela, which is known for being in a sugarcane-producing region.

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.
