Mrs Virginia Inez R. is the representative of the group. She is a single mother and has three children which financially depend on her since they are high school students. She works in the sale of sweets, it is convenient for her because the school is very close to her home and she feels that she can earn a good income. She dreams of her youngest son obtaining a professional career in addition to having a place to live. The loan will be invested in the purchase of fried items such as: fried potatoes, ingredients to make chicharron (cracklings), Salsa Bonatera (hot sauce), plastic bags, disposable plates, vegetable oil, and sweets. She notes that she know all the members of the group and that they are responsible people. They also are very grateful to the lenders from Kiva.

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.
