Fuerza En Cristo Group
In this Group: Juan José, María Adelia , Mercedes Del Carmen
The group “Fuerza en Cristo” (Strength in Christ) consists of three hardworking and enterprising individuals from the fishing town of Masaya in the valley region of Laguna. The group coordinator is a young man named Juan José F. R.. Three years ago, he started selling bread that his wife produces. He distributes this product in order to generate more income.


F. has a goal of expanding his business, but his main objective is to have his own oven which would allow him to produce greater quantities and a wider variety of products. He currently rents an oven that that only produces two batches per day. F. will invest his loan in the purchase of raw materials such as flour, yeast, milk, and other items so that he can complete his orders.


Another member is María Adelia L. R., who in 1974 began selling chemical cleaning products such as Pine Sol and chlorine. Such products are used regularly by many households. Mercedes del Carmen S. is 44 years old and has a small shop. In addition, she buys and sells jocotes (a type of plum), mangos, mamoncillos (a fruit native to the Caribbean and Latin America), papaya, currants, and other fruits. They will invest their loans in their businesses.


Also worth noting is that they have participated in nonfinancial services offered by ADIM, such as training classes in product creation and business development. According to them, these services have helped them to manage and invest wisely, economize, and improve their self-esteem.

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.
