The 'El Ficus' group has ten members who are very cheerful, hard-working and kind. Laura is one of the members of this group. She is 33 years old and studied up to high school level. She is married to Gilberto, who works as a carpenter, and the couple have three children. Only one of their children is still dependent on them. Laura tells us that she decided to start her business selling groceries a few months ago as she wanted to support her husband with their household expenses and also because she believes that her business will help her to get ahead in the future.

Laura sells her groceries every day. She starts work very early in the morning, cleaning her store. She keeps all her grocery products in her store. She puts them on display on shelves for her customers. She is very happy with her business as she gains new customers every day.

Laura needs this loan to buy oil, sweet treats, bread, canned food, juice, soft drinks, beans, rice, bread crumbs, bleach, soap, detergent, candles and bath soap to sell.

Laura hopes that, with this investment, her business will thrive and that she will make progress as she would like her business to become one of the main grocery stores in her community.

Additional Information

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.
