Aquila is the Secretary of the “SEÑOR D. LOS MILAGROS” (Lord of Miracles) group. It has 11 members. Aquila is 64 years old but her age is no impediment to continue working. She always got ahead for her children who are all now adults. Despite receiving some help from them she doesn’t want to leave her grocery store which is now well established; it’s been in operation 8 years. It’s called “JUANITO.”

This business has been of great help to her because it helps her meet her personal expenses and not be dependent on anyone; this makes her feel useful and self-sufficient.

She has all kinds of products stocked in her grocery store like: sugar, rice, pasta, all kinds of beverages and cured meats. She always strives to keep it well stocked. The loans are of great use to her because she uses the money to buy beverages like soft drinks, juices, etc. which is what sells the most during the summer season. What she most wants in life is to stay in business and that the business grows a bit more.

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.
