La Vecindad Del Cinco Group
In this Group: Martha Trinidad, Beatriz Cristina, Ermanda, Elsa Martha, Eva Esperanza, Edith Yanina
The group "La Vencindad del Cinco" consists of six members, all of whom engage in small businesses selling clothes, groceries, candy, and other items. The group was formed more than nine years ago and has done extraordinary work with the revenues earned from their loans.

One case in particular is that of Sra. Martha. She is 52 years old and presses forward each day in her business of selling candy as a street vendor. Martha has great satisfaction in knowing that her two children have an education, food, clothing, and a roof over their heads. With this current loan, she plans to invest in the purchase of more candy. She also plans to change her method of selling her products by acquiring a vending stall.

Each member of the group "La Vencindad del Cinco" has a distinct business, but they all share the same level of dedication and effort that is required to make progress and move forward every day.

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.
