Ana Bertha H., 42, lives with her common law husband and 3 children in the Horacio Zevallos area, district of Ate, department of Lima. She has worked with EDAPROSPO - Prosperidad for 3 years and currently occupies the role of president of the village bank "Las Violetas", made up of 10 partners who work in service and trade activities. Ana has worked in the sale of beauty products for 3 years, also doing handi-work like gluing sequins for the past year. With the new loan, she will invest in buying wood and poles to support her husband in his work as a chief bricklayer (he uses the wood and poles as support for roofs of houses and when he doesn't know whether they will be needed, he rents them which reduces his profit).

Until now, Ana has been able to build the walls of their house with concrete but in the future she would like to be able to roof their house, and with the help of her husband they can work together to make their dreams a reality.

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
