Valentina is a very enterprising woman who, more than ten years ago, opened a grocery store in her home. She decided to start this business as it is profitable. She always makes sales and, in addition, her house is on the edge of a main road so travellers stop to buy biscuits or a drink.

She is very happy with his business as she is able to help her husband with the household costs. In order to make more money, Valentina, as well as selling groceries, sells chicken either with feathers or already cut up.

This loan will be invested in buying beans, oil, rice, soup, sugar, toilet paper, tin foil, toothpaste, shampoo, biscuits, drinks and chicken in order to continue selling.

In the future she hopes her business will be bigger and better stocked so that she has earnings to have a better life and do some repairs at home.

This group is thankful for the support that has been provided in the form of loans to Valentina and the whole group.

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.
