Doncellas is a solidarity group that is in its third loan cycle with this institution. They are a small group composed of 6 women and are very satisfied with the group as it is. They have already been in other groups with other institutions before and have known each other well for 5 years. They are neighbors and try to choose the people who enter their group well, since they don't like that anyone is bad with the payments.

Karla Elizabeth is one of the members of this group. Three years ago, Karla decided to start to sell groceries and silver jewelry in street markets. Karla requested a loan to be able to acquire more merchandise and in that way offer her clients a wider variety of products.

She is 27 years old and is married. They have 2 small boys, 8 and 4 years old. Karla aspires to get ahead to see her sons advance. She wants to make her business grow little by little so that one day, she will be able to open a grocery store.

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.
