Vista Hermosa Group
In this Group: Rafaela, Leonides, Guadalupe, Claudia
This group is called Vista Hermosa (Beautiful View) and the members chose this name for their group because there is a very beautiful view of their city in the neighborhood where they live. This story is about Mrs. Leónides, one of the members of the group. She is 42 years old and married to Mr. Eleazer. They have four children, two of whom are in the first and second year of high school, and the older two are married. She has worked selling corn for 19 years.


She says she decided to start this work because she wanted to look for a way to help her husband with the expenses of the home and her children's education. She also wanted to improve her quality of life and be financially stable. The loan given her will be used to buy corn in bulk to continue her sales.


The goal Leónides has given herself is to offer a very good education to her children so that they choose a major and dedicate themselves to an excellent profession and then have a better future. She also wants to grow her business a lot more, and is planning to start building a grocery store to have an assortment of products to improve and increase her income. Leónides thanks FRAC and Kiva because, thanks to them, she has been able to have her own business and change her life and that of her family.


Other group members in addition to Leónides are: Rafaela, Guadalupe, and Claudia. They have different jobs like selling chicken, corn, shoes by catalog, and agricultural products.

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.
