In this Group: Maria Elena, Maria Del Socorro, Gloria
View original language description ↓
Maria Elena is 62-year-old mother of 5 children, whom she cannot ask for financial help due to their lack of funds. For this reason, she decided to sell cut-up chicken, which is brought from the Venustiano Carranza municipality, in her home. Her profits help her to both support herself and continue buying chicken. With this loan, she would like to purchase a kitchen scale and a larger number of chickens, thus saving on transportation costs. The other members of the group are: Maria del Socorro G. G., who sells shoes by catalogue; and Gloria Pérez, who sells groceries from home.

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.
