Estrellas de San Mateo (Stars of St. Matthew) Group

This group includes Doña María Candelaria, who is 52 years old and currently has four children under her care. She says that she gave birth to 13 children and most of them are grown, married, and have their own families.

María Candelaria is requesting a loan so that she can invest in the purchase of everyday consumer products (food) such as rice, beans, corn, sugar, salt, noodles, instant soups, oil, carbonated water, and other items. Her business is located in her home. María Candelaria’s goal is to buy a display cabinet with the profit she earns. Part of her gains will be invested in planting zucchini and green beans, a task that she normally performed when she lived with her husband. She hopes to receive the loan she requested since it will be blessing for her.

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.
