In this Group: Ana Joaquina, Ramona De Jesus, Blanca Lidia
Ana is a 36 year old single mother of one daughter whose principal business activity is selling groceries, which she has been doing for the last 6 years. Ana is requesting support in order to purchase products like sugar, butter, soap, sodas, meat, toilet paper, corn, beans and other staple products which will help her achieve good customer service. She has her business strategically located in her home, and the support of the requested loan will contribute to the improvement of Ana's business which will allow her to have better earnings. This will cover household costs and give a better quality of life to her daughter and help her to get ahead with her studies; she works very hard to create a strong family legacy.

One of Ana's dreams is to have one of the best grocery stores in the area. Another member Ramona makes a living selling nacatamales (steamed corn cakes) and other dishes, while Blanca has been selling prepared food and candy such as "tajaditas" (sauteed bananas), "baleadas" (tortillas filled with beans), hot dogs, and breads with meat for the last 4 years.

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.
