Ana María is a young woman with a great desire to get ahead in life. She earns her living growing and selling banana plants in the community where she lives. She inherited this business from her parents who passed on all their knowledge and experience to her. The money she earns provides Ana María with the income she needs to support her beautiful family. She enjoys the work because it is honest and benefits her community. She now has more than 17 years experience in this job.
Because she wanted to contribute to her community, Ana María decided to organize a group so they could help each other and improve their standard of living. She will use the loan money to buy supplies such as fertilizer and pay for labour to maintain her banana crops.
Ana María’s dreams are to produce more banana plants, increase her income, and provide her children with a good education.

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.
