Señora María de Lourdes R. lives in the community of Valle de Chalco Solidaridad, in the state of México. She is married and has four children, the oldest is 14 years old and from there her other is 4, the next is 2, and the youngest is just 2 months old. She works selling fruits and vegetables house by house. Before it was her husband who worked commercially in order to meet the expenses of the family, which had increased. Señora María de Lourdes has for two years worked selling door to door. She needs to buy a transportable way to carry the products she sells. She has made due with a tricycle where she loads kilos of fruits and vegetables to make her sales. With the income she generates, she wants to save because she lives with her relatives, and her children are growing and she wants to give them a place to live that is their own. Because of this, she is helping her husband with the expenses so that together they can save and leave their children an inheritance. She is inviting her friend Chuy, who is part of the group Sol Naciente, where she can save and at the same time receive a loan from Fundación Realidad so she can complete her goals for life, like one of the members of the group, asking for the said credit.

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.
