The other is Mari, as she is known by her customers, who has a business selling a variety of food including: stew, shredded beef, curried pork stew, white beans with pork, other dishes, and tortillas. Her business is located at the front of a park in the town of San Mateo Milpas Altas. She is requesting a loan to buy ingredients to make her dishes, and also to buy material to make a griddle to cook her food on, because she doesn't have one and she wants to improve her customer service. She also wants to buy firewood and to invest in meats, vegetables, and rice, which are the products that she uses daily. She hopes that you can help her with the loan that she is requesting.

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.
