She has two children who live with her: Maria Concepción, who studied only through high school, and Eduardo, age 19, who also stopped with his high school degree; he could not study further because he does not have the economic resources for his studies.

Francisca works selling chicken mole tamales. She has done this work for 40 years, and she says it is a very good business. She sells her goods every day in her village, and she says that she always sells out. She will invest her loan in buying the supplies that she uses, such as chilies, corn masa, banana leaves for the wrappers, chicken, etc. She hopes that it will go well for her, and her business will grow, since it is a source of income for her family's expenses. She is grateful for the support provided to her.

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.
