Lourdes Rosario A. C., 41, is separated and has four school age children. She’s a member of the “Señor D. Cani Cruz” communal bank.

Lourdes started a clothing sales business because of need having separated from her husband three years ago; she had to raise and feed four children on her own. Lourdes looked for work for several weeks but because she hadn’t gone beyond elementary school and also had no experience, she couldn’t find employment. She saw selling clothes as an opportunity to get ahead. She home delivers clothes to her customers. Besides sales, she alternates her days with payment collections and with household chores in order not to neglect her children’s education.

The loan is granted to buy other articles of clothing as well as shoes in order to increase income.

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.
