This group is called Albina Acalmani, and the people who formed this group chose this name because it is their leader's name and the name of the community where they all live. This story is about Mrs. Albina, who is 38 years old and married to Mr. Amador, a farm worker. They have three children: Anel, José Luis, and Gerardo. All three of her children are students and are currently in the third year of high school, third year of junior high, and fifth year of primary school. She has worked selling clothing and soft drinks for more than 10 years.


She decided to start this business because she wanted to find a way to help her children get ahead and help her husband with the expenses of the home. She also wanted to improve her quality of life. She will use the loan to buy more clothing like t-shirts, shirts, dresses, skirts, pants, shorts, and soft drinks.


Mrs. Albina's goal is to continue supporting her children with their studies so they can have professional careers and have a better future. She also wants to grow her small business and build a store for her clothing in order to improve and increase her earnings. She is very thankful with the Realidad Foundation and the Kiva lenders for the unconditional support they are providing her. Thanks to this help, she has improved her own quality of life and that of her family.

Additional Information

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.
