Ana owns the ANTICUCHERIA NAOMI restaurant. (Anticuchos are a traditional Peruvian meat-based dish.) She started the business a year ago and named it for her daughter. She had already trained as a chef and used some money that she had to start the business. She adds that much of what she needed to know to prepare anticuchos, she learned from her mother. Ana operates the business on a busy street and says that she is happy with the revenue that's coming in from the business. Thanks to the business, she has been able to help her husband--a taxi driver--with the family's expenses and save for a house. Ana is the secretary of the UNIDAS PARA ALCANZAR EL EXITO community bank. She will use the loan to buy the supplies she needs--condiments and cooking oil--to run the business. The investment will allow her to continue working and meet her goal of moving the restaurant to a permanent space.

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.
