She runs a restaurant and is requesting a loan in the amount of 2,500 PEN which she plans to use to buy groceries such as rice, sugar, pasta, oil, vegetables, meat and other food items to prepare meals.

Her restaurant is located in "Ejército" Avenue where she serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. She also has a catering service. This is her sixth loan through FINCA Perú and she likes it because of the good credit terms and the fact that she can save money.

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.
