Ana Esther is 49 years old. She did not have the opportunity to study, and is married to Salomon, who is dedicated to field work. She says that a little more than a year ago she opened a grocery store in her home with the intention of earning a little extra money to help her husband with the household expenses.

She is very happy with her business and sells every day. She opens her business everyday at 6 in the morning until 8 at night. She also said "I believe that with my store I also provide a service to my village. Here, there is little trade and the people are looking for places to make purchases. That is why I supply my business with a little bit of everything."

She is requesting a loan to buy rice, beans, oil, broth, soap, fried foods, canned goods, juices, soft drinks, sweets and cookies to re-stock her business.

For the future, Ana Esther wants her business to prosper and to expand to supply more goods.

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.
