The Group “Las Siete Rosas” (The Seven Roses) has been producing handmade blouses and corsets for four years, which enable them to support themselves and their children. For 2010, they are proposing to visit other villages and neighborhoods to sell their products. However, they need more supplies in order to make this happen. For this reason, they have come to Asociaciòn ASDIR for assistance with accessing more capital so that they can fulfill this dream. They hope to increase their sales so that they can support their families, help them get ahead, and provide them better living conditions.

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.
