She has collaborated with us for 3 years; a girl friend of hers who is a member of the communal bank invited her and she is very grateful to her for this.

The new loan will be used to buy more animals so that her business can grow. Her goal is to travel to the United States to study and become a better stylist.

Mrs. María H. lives in Cuenca’s San Joaquín sector. For the last two years she has cleaned offices five days a week. She does not have a set schedule because she gets off work when the work is completed. She also raises guinea pigs that she sells when she has to raise money and also uses them for family consumption.

She is 28 years old, married and has two children who are 7 and 3 years of age. Her oldest daughter goes to a local school. Her husband works in a hardware store and their effort as a couple has resulted in their being able to build their own house.

This is her first loan with the foundation. She was invited by a girl friend who motivated her to avail herself of these small loans. She will use the loan to buy guinea pigs so that her business will grow.

Her goal is to build a shed for chickens thus producing additional income.

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.
