The president of the bank is Verónica, 34. She's single and has two children, ages 17 and 7. She makes a living selling chicken in her sales stall in one of the markets in the town of El Torno.
This is Verónica's first loan sequence with the institution. She's going to use this loan to buy a freezer she needs to store her chicken. Her reason for requesting this loan is she lacks the capital to buy the freezer.
In her business Verónica faces the challenge of expanding her clientele. She's going to use the profits to improve her family's 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.
