She has been working in a store (selling rice, beans, green vegetables, etc...) for 10 years.

This will be her fifth loan with Turame. Upon receiving this Kiva loan, this will increase her capital and allow her to buy large quantities of rice, beans and green vegetables which she will re-sell for profit.

In the coming years, she would like to build her own house and see her children receive an education.

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.
