Patricia del Carmen C. is a very young woman and a hard worker. She sells clothing to individuals in her community. She is mother of a little boy who she supports by herself. She is a single Mom and this fact has given her the drive to work harder and put her son ahead of everything. She is going to school in Comarca, and she hopes to attend high school in Masaya.

She takes care of them and she wishes to see them complete their studies so that they will know things she will never know.
Candida Rosa Sanches is the coordinator of the gorup. She is very responsible and the group has placed her in charge because she knows how to read better than the other members and she knows how to sign her name. She has been working in the markets since she was very young together with her Mom, selling fruits and vegetable. She coupled her loan with her own savings and now she has her own stand where she sells oranges, lemons, tamarind, onions, garlic, etc. She buys her products in the markets and in the regions close to where she lives.
She has three school-aged children, three adolescents and a little baby. They are attending school in the community and one goes to school in Masaya. She feels that one should move out of Comarca and study other courses there. Her work day starts at 3a.m. and ends at 2p.m.. On her way home from work she picks up groceries to make supper. She says that the loans have granted her the ability to purchase fruits in larger quantities and therefore increase her profit margin. She is alwaye encouraging her colleauges to be responsible so that they will continue to benefit from small loans for continued improvements.
Leonor del Carmen Hernandez sells fruits and vegetables in the Oriental market. She has been running this business for many years. She dreams of making some improvements to her home.

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.
