Margarita is one of the members of a group called Barrio Capilla Vieja. The members of the group called it that because that is the name of their neighborhood. The group has 7 members. Each of them has an economic activity they do to make a little money and give their families a better quality of life. This group is located on the shores of a lake and the people there fish.

Margarita is 46 years old. She only went to primary school and is the single mother of two children. She tells us that since she was very young her mother taught her to work and since she had her children she has worked even harder to get them ahead. A little more than 3 years ago, Margarita opened a small store in her home in order to make more income for her family. She tells us that thank God, little by little she has earned customers. She always likes to have her business well stocked and to give her customers good service so they will always go back to buy from her. She will invest this loan in buying soap, rice, oil, beans, salt, sugar, canned products, candies and sugared drinks to re-stock her business and continue selling. She wants for this investment to keep her business progressing since she wants her children to have the chance to go to college.

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.
