Violeta is 31 years old. She has 1 small son who is three years old and who is the reason and motivation for all of her efforts to move ahead. She is a member of the "Siempre Unidas" ("Always United") group. This group is working on their third loan cycle with the institution. The 8 members have demonstrated that they are responsible people and punctual with their repayments.

For two years, Violeta has prepared and sold fast food such as salchipapas (hot dogs and fried potatoes), broaster chickens, and sandwiches. Every day in the afternoon at the door of her house she sells what she cooked that day. It's a job that takes her all day long, since starting very early she must do her shopping and during the day start to peel potatoes and prepare the sauces that accompany the salchipapas.

She will use the loan received to buy supplies to prepare her broaster chickens as well as to buy disposable items that she uses to serve them.

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.
