For approximately 9 years she has made a living from this business and she learned it thanks to her brother who also works in this business.

The business is located in her house; she prepares various foods there and sells her menu primarily to workers in the area who come to her business to buy food. She has also ventured into the sale of beauty products and clothing. The money from her loan will be used to rent a space in a market in her area where she can start her business.

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.
