Doña Silvia is in charge of the group. She has a small general store in her grandfather's house, selling sodas, bread and sweets. She wants to buy more products so that her store does better and her situation improves over time. Doña Silvia is a single mother of 2 children who are in primary school, and she lives with her grandfather in his house. With the earnings from her business she wants to little by little enlarge the space for her store. She also dreams of having her own house to live in with her children - she doesn't ask much, just two rooms or so to live better and have her business as well. Doña Silvia tells us that the loan will help her a great deal; with this investment she will be able to start improving her situation little by little.

Additional Information

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.
