"Rosas D. Pedregal" is an entrepreneurial bank group comprised of 8 women who live in the Pedregal area in the southern part of the city. This area is still underdeveloped and does not have many basic utilities such as running water. But this does not represent difficulties for the population living in this area.

The president of the bank, Mrs. Alicia, is a seamstress and also works as a cook in a hostel in the city. She lives with her three school-aged children. Her husband works in the transportation sector. Alicia plans to use the loan to increase her working capital and buy a sewing machine. She is a very hard-working person and grateful for the support she has received.

All of the members are dependable, hard-working women who in many cases are the ones responsible for their families getting ahead. They are grateful to the institution for the support received. N.B. One of the members is accompanied by her husand in the photo.

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.
