Salvador G. (white cap) is from a rural community called La Ica. La Ica is a small town with only about 600 people located an hour from the port in VeraC..

Don Chava, as members of his community know, raises and sells sheep. He worked in the United States for 6 years first on a farm and then in a restaurant. He had to return to his country when he became a widow and had to take care of his five children. Three of his children still live with him.

Don Chava has been raising sheep for two years and this is the reason he is asking for a loan. He wants to buy food for his sheep. His goal is to have his own land since he is keeping his sheep on land that is borrowed right now.

He is a member of a group called “Las Abejitas” that is made up of four men and eight women. The members of this group make a living by raising and selling sheep, selling regional foods, selling products from catalogs, and general commerce.

They are asking for a loan of $3,975 to invest in different businesses to be able to continue improving their quality of life and that of their families.

Additional Information

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.
