In this Group: Guzman, Lourdes, Ruth Mahelet, Yadir
This group chose the name Santa Rosa because it is the name of their neighbourhood.

The following description is about Señora Guzman as she is the group representative. She is 55 years old, married to Sr. Alejo, and they have four children, all of whom are married. She has earned her living selling traditional clothing for more than thirty years.

Sra. Guzman decided to start this business because she wanted a way of helping her husband with household expenses so they could enjoy a better standard of living. She earns a good living from it. The loan money will be used to buy dresses, blouses, shirts, table cloths etc.

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.
