Paz Y Progreso Group
In this Group: Teodora, Rosa Pilar, Fausta, Judid Magaly, Ines, Guadalupe , Vicenta, Margarita, Miguel , Katia, Flora Sofia, Esperanza
Guadalupe has been selling food for five years from the doorstep of her house. With much effort, she was able to obtain a cart that proved to be of great help to her because she is now able to display the different foods that she prepares. On the weekends she sells candy. All of this is done out of love for her family. With the loan she will receive and some of her savings, Guadalupe wants to buy a “trimovil” (a three-wheeled motorcycle taxi) so that she can increase her earnings.

Ines sells and repairs shoes with her husband. With the little income that they make, they are able to support their three children and send them to school. Her loan will be invested in the purchase of materials to improve the finished shoes that she offers.

With great effort, Fausta was able to open a restaurant many years ago. This business has helped to support and educate her children. In addition, she wants to build a home and next to it an events hall for hosting social gatherings such as birthday parties and christenings. She hopes to generate rental income that would increase her earnings.

The group is very committed to their loans and promises to make their payments on the specified due dates.

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.
