In this Group: Cruz Del Carmen, Yenifer Carolina, Alcida
Cruz, 44, is single and lives with her two grandchildren and her youngest son who helps her with the store. She does not own a house and has worked as a grocer for several years; she sells basic staple items. She is the group leader since she’s the person who has kept the group working together.

Cruz is asking for a 5000 Lempira loan to buy soft-drinks, snacks, noodles, vegetables, dairy products, chicken, bread, coffee, sugar, beans, rice, lard, canned goods and meats. With support from this loan, Cruz intends to meet the need her business has for financing and continue forward with her project which is to enlarge the grocery store and buy a piece of property to build her house on. She’s very happy to continue working with PRISMA as long as it continues supporting her and to use profits earned by the store to buy a lot to build her house. Cruz’s dream is to stay in business and improve the store as well as to make her dream of owning a house a reality.

Alcida and Yenifer work full-time in their businesses since they are their main source of income.

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.
