Gracias A Dios Group
In this Group: Lolita Del Socorro , José Luis , Bruna
The Group “Gracias a Dios” (Thanks to God) is from the eastern region of Pilas, which is located in the city of Masaya. The members of the group are Lolita del Socorro U. D., José Luis D. S., and Bruna M. M..

Lolita U. is the group coordinator. She is 32 years old and has been growing and selling watermelons for the past 4 years. Lolita decided to sell her products from the side of the highway leading to Tipitapa. She thought this would be a good place to set up her post because of the passing vehicles coming from Honduras and other Central American countries, so it would be very tempting to buy a fresh watermelon. She also sells other fruits such as oranges, bananas, and plums. Lolita has the help of her husband in running her business. She plans to invest her loan so that she can produce and purchase fruit in larger quantities and meet demand.

The group has participated in 11 loan cycles and has an outstanding record. José D. has been selling clothing and perfumes for 2½ years. Bruna M. has been selling food out of her home for 2 years.

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.
