The “El Diamante” (The Diamond) group has ten members who are very cheerful, hardworking woman. The community they live in is noted for its hot climate since it’s surrounded by rubber trees.

Marcela is one of the group members. She’s 21 years old and completed 9th grade. She’s married to Sergio who works as a day laborer. They have a five-year-old daughter who goes to preschool. Marcela is pregnant.

Marcela relates that when she was a little girl her mother taught her to work and to cook because they sold Mexican fast food snacks at the local elementary school. Now that she’s married she tells us that she continues selling to earn a bit of extra money to help her husband with household expenses. Her sales take place Monday through Friday at 10am at the elementary school. She takes a table where she sets up her snacks and candies so that when the children come out for recess they’ll buy their snacks from her.

She needs this loan to buy chili peppers, tomatoes, onions, meat, cream, cheese, corn, cabbage, lettuce, avocadoes, bananas, potatoes and candy to make her snacks to sell.

She says that she hopes the loan will lead to her business prospering because she wants to provide her daughter with a better quality of life and in future set up a small eatery to sell her Mexican fast food snacks. “Thank you Fundación Realidad for the support you are giving me.”

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.
