This Committee of Women is called Kuña Pora and was established in May 2006 in Hohenau. The group is working in its 15th loan cycle with 15 members.


These ladies engage in different businesses such as retail, handicrafts, dressmaking, and other activities. This committee is one of the oldest at its branch office. A spirit of solidarity has already developed among its members and the group has succeeded in keeping its internal finances in order. The members are disciplined with their payments and have always paid on time in each of their loan cycles.


Another characteristic of the members is that they are always conscientious when requesting their loans, and as a result they adjust their payment behavior accordingly. Since they do not have a large line of credit, they always request the maximum amount because they claim it will help cover their corresponding business activities.


Sra. Jacinta C. is 45 years old and works as a seamstress. Her husband Esteban Florentin works as a tailor. They have three children.

Jacinta wants to increase her income by acquiring materials to expand her business. She plans to produce more varieties of clothing based on the size of her customer base and the level of demand that exists.

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.
