They all belong to the Conchalí commune, located in Santiago.

She has been engaged in running a bazaar for three years. She says that she works at home with her mother’s help. She works from Monday to Sunday from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm. She buys the merchandise and supplies that she needs from supermarkets and distributors at low cost, so her business is profitable. One of Nuvia’s purposes for the loan is to stock her business with as much selection as possible in order to generate more income, and provide for her family’s welfare.

Nuvia lives with her mother, who helps her with the bazaar sales, and her brother and sister who are working. On a business level, her dream is to make her bazaar successful and have a grocery store with all the products and dairy that her customers frequently need.

She is very happy and grateful for the opportunity offered by Fondo Esperanza because their help will allow her to invest in her business. Regarding her membership in the communal bank, she says that there is good communication within the group and the training has helped her learn new sales strategies and bookkeeping.

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.
