Unidos Por El Trunfo (United for the Victory)

This group consists of ten enterprising women who saw the need to work independently in order to support the members of their families. We take this opportunity to know a few of the members a little bit better.

Yolanda is 50 years old and has been selling beauty products for more than eight years. A friend convinced her to work after she separated from her husband when her children were 15 and 12 years of age. At the time, Yolanda was working as an assistant at a state school. She offers her products with great enthusiasm to acquaintances, friends, teachers, and parents at the school. Over time she decided to sign up to proviD. cosmetics from various lines (Esika, Avon, and Natura) and become a beauty consultant. Her business is profitable because the only capital required is the money needed to purchase merchandise for her inventory. Yolanda’s hard work and desire to succeed have enabled her to fulfill her duty as a mother to proviD. food, clothing, and an education for her son who is studying electrical engineering. Her ex-husband no longer provides financial support. Her business went through some ups and downs as a result of paying for medical expenses and treatment when her son became ill. He recovered quickly and afterwards she was able to buy a small refrigerator for her home. She is requesting a loan to purchase cosmetics. She hopes to have a house of her own sometime later because she has been a caretaker at a children’s home for the past nine years.

Angélica is 39 years old. She began working nine years ago by selling candy out of a cart that she parked outsiD. of the state schools. On the weekends, she carried a basket of candy to sell at parks, stadiums, and patron saint festivals in the district of Chosica. She normally sells in the afternoons and evenings because she spends her mornings performing her household chores. The loans she has received have been used to purchase merchandise (peanuts, beans, popcorn, soft drinks, cookies, snacks, and candy). In addition she crochets and knits items such as baby outfits, jackets, sweaters, caps, and ponchos. Angélica also does appliqués with beads, tassels, shells, strips of wood, or whatever material is in fashion and requested by her customers. She currently has outstanding orders for dresses and jackets, so she needs a loan to purchase crochet needles and colored wool. Her earnings will enable to help her husband with paying for food, clothing, and education for their children.

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.
