This group is called "Flor del Rio". Its members decided to give it this name because there is a river in their community on which different kinds of flowers grow. This story is about Alicia who is already part of the group. She is 48 years old and married to Audencio who is a farmer. They have three children, all of whom are married. They have been buying and selling pigs for a living for over nine years.

She says that she decided to start up this business as she wanted to find a means of supporting her husband with the household expenses so they could be better off financially and enjoy a good quality of life. She will invest the loan she receives in buying more wholesale pigs and food.

Alicia says that her goal is to make her business grow rapidly as she would like to build some premises for a butcher's shop, thereby offering a better service to her customers and also allowing her to earn more money.

She would like to thank FRAC and the Kiva lenders for giving her this opportunity and a sense of confidence, but above all for believing in her.

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.
