El Billar Group
In this Group: Dina Isabel, María Auxiliadora , María De Los Ángeles
The Billar group is made up of three women who are hardworking, eager, and enterprising. One of them is María Auxiliadora R., the group’s coordinator. She has been selling clothing such as shirts, blouses, pants, jeans etc. for three years. She began with an investment of 2,000 córdobas in the business, but now it is larger because she has a regular clientele.

The other members of the group are Dina Isabel R. R. who has been selling clothing and shoes since 2003, and María de los Ángeles L. Calero who began selling drinks at the age of 17, and now has her own refreshment stand.

The dream of the three women is to improve their businesses, have their own stalls, and buy other products to sell. R., for example, would like to have a store, Lezema a bakery, and R. just wants to get on in life. For these reasons, they are putting into practice the knowledge they have gained through Kiva partner Adim’s training programs.

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.
