La Pomarrosa ( Flat) Group
In this Group: Julia, Olgalidia , Blanca Mireli, Robeth
Robeth P. E. lives in Coapilla in the state of Chiapas, Mexico. She is 58 years old, and is married to Alfredo S. P., and they have 3 children who are now married.

Robeth has had a grocery store for 10 years, and she tells us that the business is going very well. With the business, she has been able to get ahead by earning income for her home. Even so, she counts on the support of her husband who works every day in the fields, and when he has time he helps her to attend to the store.

She was motivated to go into this line of work by her prior work experience, since she worked in a convenience store for about 8 years. She comments that at first she was anxious about having her own business, but "today, thanks to God, I've managed to spend the days doing this work which gives me good results." With the profits she wants to save to expand her business and buy more merchandise to better serve her customers.

Robeth formed a group as a result of an invitation that was made to her by one of the FRAC workers, and it interested her very much. She discussed it with her associates, and they gave the group the name "Pomarrosa" because it is named after a fruit of the same name.

The other members of the group are: Julia C. Pérez, who sells chicken that she seasons in her own house, Blanca Míreli, who will use the loan to buy ingredients to make bread, and Olga Lidia, who makes dresses, skirts, blouses and pants.

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.
