Elvira is 25 years old and has a small business selling stationery. She tells us that when she started this work, it was because she wanted to open her own business and, given that there were no other stationers in the community, she thought that this would be a good investment. Thanks to her hard work and effort, she now has had the business for five years. Elvira is very happy as it is her own source of employment and she can earn her own money from her own home.

Elvira has applied for a "Vision Fund" loan in order to expand her business, by buying pencils, pens, glues, colouring pencils, scissors, white paper, coloured paper, card, Plasticine, notebooks, and more.

Elvira and her husband have two young sons. Elvia is proud of her business as there is no other like it in the community and she feels that, in some way, she is helping the people and children who live nearby.

Elvira is a member of the "El Mañana" group, which is in the Arroyo de Pita community. Here the main source of work is from sowing and growing sugar cane.

Emma - sells soft drinks
Adriana - sells chicken

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.
