Virginia is 51 years old and single. She only had a secondary education. She has two children who are older and married. She says that since she was very small, she learned to work. She learned this since she did not have the opportunity to continue her education; however, she did open her own grocery store business. She began selling in a small space in her home, and as years went by, she constructed her business site where she now has her business.

She said, "Before anything else, thank you very much for the help that you give us with these loans, since thanks to them, our businesses are growing."

She says that she likes to have her business well-stocked so that her customers always find what they're looking for and gladly come back to make the expense.

She will use this loan to buy beans, oil, rice, soup, sugar, toilet paper, aluminum foil, toothpaste, shampoo, cookies, and soft drinks to restock her store.

In the future, she hopes to use her earnings to make home reparation and have a better quality of life.

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.
