Gs Nueva Betania Group
In this Group: Pablo, Eduard, Milton
Pablo is 57 years old and his main activity is growing coffee. He has four manzanas [Central American unit of land measurement] of coffee plants he’s had for more than 15 years. He lives with his wife and is asking for a loan for the coffee crops; he will buy fertilizer, bug killer and will pay day laborers to improve productivity because he’s unable to attain higher production for lack of financing. With the support from the requested loan, Pablo will be able to produce more on his farm and obtain higher income to cover household expenses and give his family a better quality of life and help it get ahead. One of Pablo’s dreams is to have one of the best technologically up-to-date farms in the zone along with his fellow group members.

Eduard is a coffee grower and has five years’ experience running his farm.

Milton is a coffee grower and has more than three years’ experience.

They are very happy with their group and in the photo they appear very happy with their fellow member, Santiago.

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.
