Formando un Futuro (Forming a Future) is a group that lives in San Juan D. Lurigancho and is maD. up of persons who have overcome problems as big as abandonment. For example: Hilaria, 55, has learned to overcome heavy blows in life. She was abandoned as a very young girl and had to roam the streets begging for food until she met a woman who became fond of her and helped her with food and clothing. Still, Hilaria had to work. Hilaria grew based on toil and, by the age of 14, had exacting jobs. One of them was as a dishwasher in a restaurant. At 15, she met the man who would become her partner and father of her two daughters. He was employed as a municipal trash collector, a job that barely earned him enough income to eat. Years passed and when their eldest daughter was 12 years old and the youngest was 6, Hilaria suffered another abandonment; this time by her partner. He abandoned her to her fate, with two daughters. Hilaria now had to be both mother and father and started working again. She began selling candy, then popsicles and ice-cream. Later it was food, prepared meals and at night, sweets and cookies that she peddled from a basket that she carried through the streets. After 25 years, her ex-partner and father of their daughters, returned but only because he was crippled. Their daughters were unaffected by this turn of events because they were independent by this time with families of their own. Now, Hilaria's partner helps out with what he can, like tending to the business, etc. Currently, Hilaria has a small kiosk which the city allows her to use to sell sweets, candies, beverages, etc. and she also has a small ice-cream vending cart for Donofrio brand items and she has traveling phone booths. She is a strong woman who has dreams like so many other women in this society. She tells us with a smile "my dream is to finish my home and to have a store in it so that I can work without having to leave my house because what I most enjoy is work and, if I could work from home, that would be even better for me"

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.
