“Matizados Omar” is the business owned by Sra. Rosa that is named after her oldest son. She is a member of the group “El Algodonal Florece” (The Cotton Blossom), which consists of twelve members and is one of the largest and most enthusiastic of EDAPROSPO. Rosa’s husband is an employee at a paint factory and sells paint on credit and at low cost. Together they opened their business from a small stand at the local market. Eventually the demand for paint grew, so they had to find a larger location in a more centralized part of the city and have done very well.

Rosa is in charge of managing and perfecting the business. Her goal later on is to have more money so that she can buy a store because she currently rents her location. With the money from this loan, she will buy more paints in bulk in order to get them at lower cost.

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.
