Bethzabe C. is a member of the Union Group, which meets every two weeks at the German Busch Community Center. She and her husband work together to manufacture furniture. Her husband is known for his carpentry skills and worked in his father’s shop before they got married. As soon as they decided to work independently, Bethzabe and her husband opened their own woodworking shop and have now been in business for four years. They operate two vending locations, one in the July 16th district and the other in the Ballivián district. Both of them desire to continue and improve their business, so they need a loan to purchase materials in bulk such as wood and nails.

The other group members have businesses selling mobile phone accessories, plastics, beauty products, and antiques. They need a loan to increase their operating capital.

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.
