La Inmaculada Concepcion Group
Benjamina has been working for 19 years selling groceries in a stall in the market. This business came up because her husband died. She needed to support her four children. So she worked very hard to get her family ahead. She began selling sweets. Little by little she grew her capital and invested it in rice, milk, and vermicelli. Occasionally she also sells "marcianos" [ice pops in a plastic tube], ice cream, and ice pops in the summer.
Thanks to her effort and dedication she has gotten better economic income. Her children managed to study. Little by little she bought things for her home and above all her family has a better quality of life.
With the goal of continuing to grow, she has requested a new loan to buy supplies (rice, vermicelli, milk).
We know that Benjamina will achieve her goals with a lot of work and effort, and that the EDAPROSPO loans will help her.

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.
