When Lorena received the invitation to be part of “EDAPROSPO” she never imagined it would change her life. She is a person who has known extreme poverty and she reflects on the time when she had nothing to eat and nowhere to live. Along with her husband, she suffered great hardships.

As she knew how to knit, she began making sweaters and ponchos that she sold to her friends and family. She also learned how to make yogurt and jams. These sales allowed her to obtain a living and also to save. She used her first loan to buy wool and in this way amass capital. She put a small store in her house and bought her first car. She now has 3 cars that she rents to third parties, generating her daily income. With her earnings she will be able to build her house from solid material and gain a better quality of life.

Lorena is happy for all that she has accomplished. She knows that is took a lot of strength and sacrifice. She always planned for the future. Now that she has a taxi car business, she is studying marketing and is thinking about buying a few second hand cars and starting this business. She will use her loan to supply her home store with more merchandise as while she has been busy with the car business her home has been a little neglected.

On the siD. is the president of the group “MUJERES DECIDIDAS E INDEPENDIENTES” (Decisive and Independent Women), a group recently created but with a lot of desire to work.

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.
