Cristo El Salvador Group
In this Group: Ana Maria, Juan Vicente, Luxi Merqui, Eugenia, Emma, Dora Daria, Rosa Melvi
Ana María is a born entrepreneur and has charisma which makes her easy to get on with. For this reason, the members of her group chose her as their group president. She belongs to the "Cristo el Salvador" (Christ the Savior) community bank and it was Ana María herself who suggested the group's name because she is a believer.

Ana María's business is making backpacks and suitcases for men and women. She has several workers who make it possible to complete all her orders. Initially, Ana María sold backpacks in a shopping mall. There she met her husband who made backpack frames and that was how the idea came about. Ana María was a seamstress with a great ability for making sales. Her husband would make the frames and she would make the backpacks. It was a joint idea and a very profitable one. Ana María and her husband are very well known in their area as "the couple that makes backpacks".

Ana María has a dream which is to open her own store where she can sell her own brands and expand into another type of production.

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.
