Mujeres De Valor Group
Sra. Carmen is one of the members who has a great deal of business experience. She is 63 years old and the mother of five children. Carmen says that she has always lived a nice life, but things get a little more complicated when it comes to the finances. Her husband has always worked on a farm, so they depend solely on the crops he produces. On a few occasions, they have had barely enough to eat so she decided to help her husband with supporting their children by contributing toward the household income.
Carmen is requesting a loan to buy more merchandise for her grocery store so that she can offer her customers more of the products that they need. She has been in business for 20 years and is very pleased. In addition to managing her business, she strives to provide for the education of her children so that they can achieve their dreams.
The woman in the photo who cannot be seen clearly is Sra. Leticia.

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.
