Bertha’s a 65-year-old woman who only attended primary school; she’s single. She’s one of the members of the group called “5 de Mayo”. This group is located in city in Veracruz, a place noted for the intense heat. Bertha relates that she’s been selling groceries for 42 years; her store is one of the city's oldest and it’s located in a small locale she built little by little.

Bertha is very happy with her business because thanks to it she’s been employed all these years and it’s helped her to get ahead and to have better quality of life. What she’s liked best about her work is to deal with people daily; she’s watched several generations grow who have been coming to her store since they were little.

She’s asked VisiónFund for this loan to stock her store; she will buy beans, oil, rice, soup, canned goods, snacks, and toilet paper, candy, soft-drinks, juices, cookies and flavoring agents. She wants to continue working in her business and continue stocking it with more products every day. She said: “Thanks for the support VisiónFund has given me through their loans through which we feel like we still belong even though we are of advanced age.”

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.
