Nolvia is the first one on the left in the photograph; she has wavy hair and a big smile, and is wearing glasses on her head, a blue blouse, and a purse across her chest. She belongs to Volcanes de Coronel Communal Bank, the members of which have a variety of businesses, including selling glasses, jewelry, selling new and used clothing, selling vegetables, and selling cosmetics.

Nolvia has had her business for two years. She sells homemade jam and whole wheat bread, and recently started catering. Her aunt taught her to make jam and bread a long time ago. Nolvia also sells lunch to teachers during the school year, which helps her finances.

Nolvia's big challenge now is being able to firm up her dream of having all her catering supplies: dinnerware, silverware, nice tablecloths, and glassware. It's challenging because she has just begun and it's going fairly well for her.

Nolvia will use the money she's requesting to buy jam jars and everything she needs to firm up her catering plans.

What she likes most about participating in Fondo Esperanza is the meetings.

Nolvia, quien aparece de las primeras a la izquierda de la fotografía con lentes en su cabeza, pelo ondulado y una gran sonrisa, blusa azul y cartera cruzada; pertenece a l Banco Comunal Volcanes de Coronel, en el cual sus socios tienen variados negocios tales como la venta de gafas, joyas, venta de ropa nueva y usada, venta de verduras y cosméticos. Nolvia tiene su negocio hace dos años en donde vende mermelada artesanal pan integral y hace poco integro la banquetería. Aprendió hace mucho tiempo ya que una tía le enseño a hacer mermeladas y pan integral. Aunque en época de colegio ella también vende almuerzos a profesores, lo cual también ayuda a su economía. El gran desafío que Nolvia tiene ahora es poder concretar su sueño de tener todo para banquetería, vajillas, cubiertos, lindos manteles, copas; ya que está recién comenzando y le ha ido bastante bien, es por eso que ahora será su gran desafío.
El dinero que solicita lo ocupará para comprar frascos para mermeladas y además todo lo necesario para concretar su sueño de banquetería. Lo que más le agrada de participar junto a Fondo Esperanza es el hecho de poder compartir en las reuniones.

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.
