Las Gaviotas De Soto Group
In this Group: Felix, Juana , Margarita Sinforosa
This group is called Las Gaviotas de Soto and is made up of three people: one man and two women, who are humble, hard-working, and kind.

The representative of the group is Félix, who is seventy-nine years old. He has worked for three years selling and raising cattle. He is happily married to Gloria, a hard-working woman. Félix tells us that to feed his cattle, he leaves very early with his water jug and his tortillas for lunch and he eats since he returns home at about six in the evening. He then leaves with his herd to graze and give them water and the following day he has to milk them, so that Gloria can make her delicious cheeses. He requests the loan to purchase more cattle and feed for his cows, since he needs to feed them well so that when it is time to sell them, they weigh a lot and look very healthy.

The other members are: Juana, who works selling meat wholesale and retail, and Margarita, who works selling fresh chicken. They are thankful to the foundation for helping hard-working people who want to better themselves, despite their age and being from small towns.

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.
