'Arbejitas' is a solidarity group with Credituyo that is in its first lending cycle. It consists of 6 members with small businesses to the north of Monterrey city. They chose that name for the group because it's the name of the street where they hold their weekly meetings. Most of the group's members work selling new and used clothing at the market.

Cynthia Elizabeth is one of the group members; she has 3 daughters and is pregnant, and lives with her partner. Cynthia sells new clothes at the market near her home, and also has a snack stand at home where she sells soft drinks, sweets and snacks. She supports her husband with household expenses since he works in construction and sometimes does not have work.

With this loan, Cynthia hopes to buy several bales of clothes to sell and increase her profits. One of her long-term goals is to create a cybercafe (Internet Cafe) in her home, which she believes is a good business in her community.

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.
