Union Pesquera Group
In this Group: Cristobal , Yuliana , Ines , Eusebia , Lucia
The “Unión Pesquera” group is located in a sugarcane producing zone on the shores of a beautiful lagoon that’s the main source of employment for the community since most of the residents fish. This group is composed of five very hardworking, tenacious people each with their own economic activity: Cristobal provides carpentry services, Yuliana and Eusebia sell ‘mojarra’ [type of bream], Lucía has an Internet café and Ines sells chicken.

Lucía, 33, attended high school and is married to Adolfo who works as a farmer; they have two children. Lucía relates that a little over six years ago with help from her husband she opened an Internet café aiming at earning a bit of money to help her husband with daily expenses since every day the economic situation was becoming more difficult. Her business is located next door to her house in a small locale she built. She rents computers and makes copies. In time her business has grown and she started to sell CDs and USB memory sticks to increase her profits. She will use the loan to buy ink, sheets of paper, CDs and USBs and to service the equipment to continue providing Internet access service. She is very happy because she does not have much competition and profits are good. She wants in time to continue expanding the business and purchase more computer systems.

The Unión Pesquera group thanks the Fundación for the trust placed in them by granting this loan.

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.
