Señor De La Esperanza Group
Norma is 53 years old, a single mother, and has two children, one of whom is in her care and currently studying thanks to her hard work. Norma recently acquired a small kiosk which she has located outside her home and there she sells meals and fried food such as kebabs, hot dogs and grilled chicken. She works hard because she has customers who carry out maintenance work on the roads. Norma would like to invest her loan money in obtaining school supplies for the 2011 school year since she knows that this way she will make extra profits. She will also continue selling meals.
Norma's dream is to one day have a grocery store in her home. The members of the "Señor de la Esperanza" community bank are active participants and they are punctual in making their repayments. They are grateful for the attention people pay to their request.
Owing to her working hours, Ileodora did not arrive in time for this photo. She works in San Juan de Matucana Hospital as a cook. The lady whose photo is added to the main photo is Miss C.. She works as a cosmetologist in the city of Chosica and the distance between Chosica and Matucana made it impossible for her to be punctual in arriving at the loan disbursement meeting.

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.
