The “Virgen D. L. Puerta” community bank was set up in 2010. It has seven members who are all responsible and all working actively within the Prosperidad (Prosperity) program. They carry out different business activities to help their families.

Gudelia has been working within EDAPROSPO's 'Prosperidad' program for years. She is one of the founders of the "Virgen D. L. Puerta" community bank. Gudelia is the mother of three children, two of whom are dependent on her and her husband. She has been working as a cook in a restaurant for two years. She also tells us that she crotchets items to fill orders that her acquaintances make with her.

Together, Gudelia and her husband have been able to proviD. their children with an education and also build their own home. Gudelia tells us that one of her daughters is in bad health. She has problems with her eyes. Gudelia will therefore use the loan she has requested to cover some treatment expenses and also buy some skeins of yarn to make crotcheted goods to fill her orders.

In the future, Gudelia would like to finish building her home since it still doesn't have a roof and also set up her own business so that she can work independently as a cook and offer her customers a variety of dishes. The members of the "Virgen D. L. Puerta" community bank are grateful for the loan they have received.

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.
