This group is called “La Capilla” (The Chapel), or “La Col” for short, since the members live near the last chapel of El Cerrito. The group consists of thirteen members who are dedicated to various businesses:


• Raquel, Roberta, and Jose Luis sell clothing.
• Antonia and Teresa sell fruits and vegetables.
• Jared sells silver.
• Angela, Araceli, and Porfiria sells merchandise through catalogs.
• Miguel sells products for the home.
• Petra manages a candy store.
• Guadalupe manages an auto repair shop.
• Reyna has a sewing workshop.


Sra. Angela has been a member of the group for the past three loan cycles. She is married and has two children who already married themselves. Doña Angela wants to expand her business by acquiring a cart so that she can sell bedspreads in the surrounding neighborhoods. Together with her son, she sells cookware sets, ironing boards, and other items to earn more income and get ahead. Angela will use her loan to purchase pots, pans, blankets, and bed sheets. Her goal in life is to help out at home and assist her children whenever they need her.


Angela says she feels very at ease with the other members and that her group has accomplished a lot. Her group has not had any problems and hopes to continue with the beneficial support of Kiva and Fundación Realidad.

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.
