Carlos is 49 years old, married and has 4 children. His principal activity is growing coffee. He has had a coffee farm of 5 manzanas [7.35 acres] for more than 26 years. Carlos lives with his wife and their children. He is requesting a loan to pay for planting a manzana of coffee; buying fertilizers and chemicals and paying employees, in order to improve his farm's productivity. Lack of financing has been preventing him from performing adequate maintenance.

This loan will enable Carlos' farm to achieve better coffee production and, also, to produce better income to pay for household expenses, and provide a better quality of life for his family, including financing university study for his children and to help build a new house with all the conveniences. He has worked very hard to build up a family patrimony and these activities have required hard work. Among Carlos' dreams is to have one of the best and most technically modernized farms in his zone, and to provide a better education for his children.

Carlos is the leader of the 'Grupo Solidario Las Vegas' [Fertile Plains Solidarity Group], which has 6 members, all dedicated to the same activity, coffee growing. They have confidence in Carlos as the group's coordinator because he is a very responsible and committed person. Mayra [another member] also has a general store. She isn't in the photograph because she couldn't attend the meeting. Delfida also has a general store, with more than 18 years experience. Rene is a coffee grower who sustains his family. Hebert is also a coffee grower and his desire is to advance his family. Anastacio, too, is dedicated to coffee growing and to his family.

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.
