Wilfredo is 38 years old. He is married and has six dependent children. His main business activity is growing coffee. He has three 'manzanas' (1 manzana = 1.72 acres) of coffee plantation which he has owned for more than nine years.

Wilfredo is requesting a loan to maintain his coffee plantation. He will buy fertilizers and pesticides, and pay laborers to improve the productivity of his farm because, owing to a lack of money, he has not been able to provide it with adequate maintenance. With the support of this loan, Wilfredo will enjoy a better coffee production which will allow him to make better income with which to cover his household expenses and provide his family with a better quality of life.

Wilfredo and his wife have worked very hard to build up their family assets because you have to work very hard in this business. One of Wilfredo's dreams is to have one of the best farms using modern technology in his area. This will make him more money so that he can provide his family with a better quality of life.

Wilfredo and his fellow coffee growers came together to form a group so that they could request a loan to improve their farms. The other members are Olman and Luís. They both grow coffee on their own land and have a lot of experience in running their farms.

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.
