The president of the bank is Yovana, 31. She has three children and makes a living selling perfume via catalogue. She sells her products on foot, visiting different offices and street fairs in the city of Cochabamba.
This is Yovana's first loan sequence with the institution. She's going to use it to buy merchandise wholesale, such as perfume, for the end-of-the-year season.
Yovana's going to use her profits to continue buying a variety of products because this is the season for good sales and she generates good income. She's happy about and grateful for the opportunity offered through this loan.

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.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
