She and her husband, a bricklayer, do everything possible to give their family the best living conditions. Raquel wants to set up a stand to sell her merchandise and increase her working capital.

Bertha A. sells food in her house in the evenings. She makes empanadas from rice and “cuñape” (a type of empanada) during the day to sell in the evening. She has two children who go to primary school. She is a very humble and hard-working woman. The loan from Emprender is to buy tables and chairs to sell food in the evenings.

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.
