She sells fruit and vegetables in the east market in Managua. She sells all her merchandise on a cash basis, and the instinct acquired in her 40 years of experience is what guides her to know what fruit to purchase to obtain the greatest profits.

For 6 years, Ana has made embroidery and sold it in the municipal market in the city of Masaya, which is also the business place of Tercenio, who is, in his own words, a craftsman of footwear.

These people want the best for their families, and to see their sons and daughters excel is their greatest dream.

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.
