Brisa Del Mar Group
In this Group: Yolanda, Rosalia, Hipolita, Gloria, Araceli, Leticia
This group is called "Brisas del mar", a name chosen by the members because it was the first thing that occurred to them. This story speaks of one of the members, Yolanda, who is 38 and married to Wenceslao, with whom she has 4 children: one in their 3rd year of senior high school, one in the 2nd year of high school, and 2 more who are still in elementary school. Yolanda has been making and selling snack food for more than 7 years.

Yola (as she's known in her neighborhood) decided to start this business because she needed to improve her family's quality of life and assure her children's future prospects. The loan that she received will be used to buy more ingredients like onions, oil, salt, rice, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, meat, corn, firewood, etc.

She wants to continue investing in her business so that she can grow more. She wants to build a space to put a small restaurant and increase her sales and income. That way she will be able to continue supporting her children in their studies, so that they can have a good profession and improve their quality of life.

She is very grateful to the Kiva lenders and Fundacion Realidad, because thanks to them she is moving forward and has been able to have her own business.

Other members of Yola's group are: Rosalia, Hipolita, Gloria, Araceli and Leticia, who work in different businesses like shoe sales, clothing sales, butcher shops, groceries and corn.

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.
