For over 40 years Flor's husband has dedicated his life to artisan fishing. She and her family live in Ancón which is a fishing port north of Lima. She began her business when she realized that some fisherman in the area needed fishing supplies, especially the nets they use. With her first loan through EDAPROSPO she bought several nets to get started.

She began renting the nets in the summer months when demand was the highest. This month business will be a little slow because of the tsunami in Japan which kept many fisherman from going out to sea.

She plans to use the loan to buy more nets and repair the ones she has. She wants to continue with and expand her business. Flor is the secretary of the "ANCONERAS EMPRENDEDORAS" group, which she is happy to be a part of because of the support she receives in her aim to expand.

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.
