In this Group: Santa, Santa, Berta, Jesus, Adriano, Felicia, Daniel, Samuel, Polonia, Virgen
Santa J. is a hardworking grandmother supporting her family selling various merchandise, such as clothing, perfume, deodorant, shampoo and kitchen goods. Selling these goods from her home and on the street, Santa is committed to getting products to her customers. She is so committed that she will wake up at 4 a.m. to take a four-hour bus to a large city to prepare her inventory.

Santa is the mother of 12 children, of which four live with her along with four grandchildren. She finds herself needing to use any profits to support the household with food and electricity. Her husband makes extra money creating and selling carbon for cooking.

Living with far too many people in too small of a house, Santa is hoping that with time, she will save enough money to improve her home. She describes the need to create more space for the 10 people living under her roof. She is thankful for the opportunity to take out her third loan with the hope of an improved business.

Thank you for this Kiva loan!

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.
