Currently, she is single and she tells us that her most difficult challenge is finding a partner with whom she can share her life as her children are now independent and she lives alone. She enjoys cooking and having her children and grandchildren home.

After having satisfactorily paid off her first loan, which helped her business to grow, MatilD. is very excited to receive her second loan through Esperanza Internacional . She has been selling cosmetics for 10 years now and, little by little, was able to save enough to start her grocery store.

Her dream is to have a house in the country and raise animals and have a beautiful flower and rose garden.

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.
