In this Group: Beatriz , Martha , Ermanda , Elsa , Yolanda , Aladino , Guisela Alina
The “Vecindad del Cinco” (Neighborhood of the Five) has seven members who are all retailers. They sell clothes and groceries, for example. It has been in operation for over 7 years and they have done an extraordinary job with profits from the loans.

One case in particular is Mrs. Beatriz Bazán, 39. She goes out every day with her ambulatory clothing sales business. This business has brought her many benefits, like being able to educate her four children, providing food, clothing and a roof over their heads.

She plans to use the present loan to buy summer clothes and to save up to buy a fabric cutting machine in the future that will be very helpful for her business.

Every member of the group has a different job but they all agree on dedication and daily effort to make progress and continue to move forward.

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.
