'La Lindera' is a group of three women who want to be successful in life. The group's president is María because she is a sociable, calm, friendly and responsible person. María is 34 years old, married, and has three children. She lives with her children in Latacunga, in Cotopaxi province.

In common with her fellow group members, María is a farmer. This is the first time that her group has worked with Fodemi. They will invest this loan in buying bean and potato seeds. When they harvest their crops, they will sell them and thereby make good income which will help them to cover their household expenses and improve their quality of life.

María's dream is to have sales premises from which she can sell her produce.

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.
