Yolanda is a member of the “Luz D. San Antonio” communal bank. The bank's ten members work hard every day to get ahead, each one in their own business. This is the case with Yolanda who is a very hard-working woman. She sells glass vases, jugs and cups as well as helping in the kitchen at the “L. Central” eatery in her area.

Previously, Yolanda's husband bought a car with the severance pay which he received from his old job. Inexperienced in this field, they were ripped off when they bought it and it constantly broke down. In other words, the investment which they maD. turned out to be a loss. Yolanda set herself up in the business of selling glass products since the factory where her husband worked paid its employees in goods which they manufactured; that is to say glass products. Yolanda had to sell them in order to keep her household finances afloat. It has helped her to support her husband and allowed their children to finish their education. It has also helped them put food on the table.

In the beginning, it was not easy because only their friends bought from them but this situation changed because Yolanda realized that there was not a lot of competition in providing these products at the time and she maD. good profits. Since then she has continued to offer her jugs, glasses and vases. The loan which she now needs will be used to purchase underwear for children and women such as stockings, briefs and bras to receive in the coming year.

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.
