Nelly started selling snacks out of a small display case with just a few items like cookies, chocolates and beverages. With much effort over the last 7 years she has increased her working capital and her business has improved becoming “BODEGA YORDI,” a larger store with many more products. Now, she doesn’t just sell snacks; she also has other grocery items like rice, sugar, noodles and baked goods hoping to have everything to keep the customers that come to her store daily happy.

Income from the store makes it possible for her to see to extra expenses and mostly for the education of her four small children that are still in school. Later on she wants to go into the hardware business but for now she’s completely dedicated to her grocery store.

She will use this loan to stock up on general merchandise like groceries and beverages. As President of the “LAS ROSARINAS” group she wants to work and get ahead together with her fellow group members.

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.
