Eduardito Group
In this Group: Fátima Del Socorro , Xiomara Antonia , Xiomara Estela
The Eduardito Group is originally from Bo Maestro, which is part of Managua. The three members of this group are women of humble character who fear nothing.

Doña Fátima del Socorro Fuente is 36 years old and the group coordinator. Five years ago, she started a mini grocery store out of her home as a means of earning an income and paying for basic necessities.

Fátima says she lost a lot of money that she personally invested into an automobile that she rents out as a taxi. Since then, she has used her loans from ADIM to pay for maintenance of the vehicle. (Her previous loan was used to buy tires. This loan will be used to pay for engine repairs.) Going forward, she will make her payments using the rental fees she receives on a daily basis.

She hopes to revive her grocery store using the loans that have been provided to her, so that she can earn more income and improve her living conditions.

Xiomara Antonia G. recently joined the group and operates a barber shop out of her home. Doña Xiomara M. sells all kinds of candy, drinks, and other foods from her vending kiosk. They all want to use their loans to help them succeed. The group is very reliable, punctual, and has never failed to make their payments.

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.
