They are happily married and have four children: Jonathan is 20 and studying medicine, Juan Manuel is 18 and also studying medicine, Jaret is 16 and in the first year of high school, and Jamileth is 12 and in the sixth grade.

Anabel is a merchant who has a business of selling butchered chickens. She says that her sales depend on the number of chickens that are slaughtered. For example, in a good season, she wills sell two cases of chickens, which is how they are sold. Each case contains 10 chickens, which means that she can sell nearly 20 chickens. When sales are low, she sells anywhere between 12 and 15 chickens per day. Anabel has 10 years of experience in this business and wants to invest her loan in more cases of chickens. Thanks to her earnings, her children never lack anything. One of her greatest wishes is to see her children press forward and finish their higher education.

Anabel joined the group “Las Bugambilias”, which consists of eight women and two men who are dedicated to their work. With effort, dedication, and responsibility, they have been able to move forward on behalf of their families. Listed below are the members and each of their business activities:

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.
