Kenia is an honest, responsible, and hardworking young person. She lives with her husband and her child in a community in the south of Honduras. For more than five years her business has been selling food.

Kenia needs the loan to buy spices, stock, salt, chili peppers, onions, celery, potatoes, plantains, beets, lettuce, chayote, cabbage, chicken, beef, etc.

With the loan she hopes to increase her sales because she'll have new capital and more products to offer her customers.

Kenia dreams of positioning her restaurant as one of the biggest and best known in her area and of being able to continue helping her child become a respectable person and have better opportunities.

Kenia and her group partners hope that this investment in their businesses will improve their families' economic situation somewhat. They're happy to work with Prisma.

Luz's business is a restaurant she has had for 15 years. Mirna has bought and sold new clothing for three years in the various hamlets near her community.

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.
