Mirna noes that she has worked selling Mexican antojitos and sweet treats for 6 years. She sells during the recreation period (breakfast recess in schools) at the primary school. Her work day starts very early with the preparation of Mexican antojitos. She then goes to the school to set up her small stall. Although she only sells for half an hour, she sells out and even the mothers of the school children know her, and place special orders that she delivers.

She decided to start her own business because she doesn't like being alone at home. She likes to work and to be able to contribute to the household expenses.

The loan from VisionFund will enable her to purchase oil, beans, tortillas, cream, cheese, lettuce, chicken, beef, chili peppers, onions, tomatos and a variety of sweets. She hopes that with this investment her business continue to develop.

In the future she would like to establish a grocery store in her home.

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.
