Obdulia is a member of the group called 'Vista Hermosa' (Beautiful View). This group is made up of nine very hard-working and cheerful women who make their sales in order to earn a little extra money and provide their children with a better quality of life. They live in a community which is noted for being in a sugarcane region. Their husbands work in the fields (sowing and cutting sugarcane).

Obdulia is 41 years old and studied up to high school level. She is a single mother and has three children. Her eldest child is called Karen and she is 19 years old. She is studying at university. 15-year-old Brenda is in high school and 9-year-old Luis Angel is in elementary school. Obdulia tells us that she has always had to work to provide for her children and pay for their education. A little over 10 years ago she started selling chicken together with her friends and neighbors in her community. However, over time, and as a result of the hard work her whole family has carried out in order to get themselves ahead in life, they have managed to become suppliers. They currently supply chicken to all the ladies who sell in their community. The work that Obdulia and her family carry out requires a lot of effort and work as they must get up at 5 o'clock in the morning to start seasoning the chicken which they then go out to deliver to their customers. She says that she sells more and more every day and that her business is gradually growing. Obdulia needs this loan to invest in buying more chickens so that she can continue making her sales.

Obdulia hopes that this investment will allow her business to continue making progress as she would like her business to continue growing so that she can pay for her children's education.

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.
