In this Group: Jacinta , Mirna , Gabriela , Araceli, Gregoria , Liliana , Francisca , Armando , Piedad
Sra. Jacinta is one of 9 members of the Dania community bank. All of the members have businesses that they operate with the intention of earning an extra income and helping to support their families. The 9 members of our group are enterprising, spirited and hard-working. The area is surrounded by woods of hulera and local people tap resin from the trees to sell.
Dona Jacinta, 47, only has an elementary school education. She is married to Sr. Apolinar. She says that she has always wanted to help her husband with the family's expenses, but she was afraid that doing so would come at the cost of neglecting her work at home. She decided, 10 years ago, to ask him to help her set up a small refreshment stand at their house. She only sold soft drinks at first but she eventually added fritters and other snacks because that's what the children of the neighborhood most wanted. She says, "I like my business because I can see my neighbors . . . especially the children who come here to buy their snacks. I want to thank everyone who supports my business and the other members of my community bank. This investment will allow me to improve my business". Dona Jacinta will use this loan to buy the merchandise--soft drinks, snacks, etc.--she needs to stock her business. This loan from the Foundation will not only help her stock her store, but also improve her quality of life. For the future, Dona Jacinta hopes to expand the range of products she sells.

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.
