Las Solteras Group
In this Group: Nuria , María Francisca, Blanca Lidia , Magdalena , Brenda , Susana
"Las Solteras" (The Single Ladies) is a group made up of six women who have many things in common. They are hard-working, friendly and single: that is why they decided to give the group this name. It is located in the community of Caxapa, where one of the main activities is collecting resins from hule trees.

The members of this group are: Nuria (nutrition club), María Francisca (snack food sales), Blanca Lidia (soft drink sales), Magdalena (clothing sales), Brenda (grocery sales), and Susana (snack food sales).

Brenda is 25, went to high school, and is single. She says that three years ago she opened a small grocery store, as since leaving school, she had looked for work, but did not find it. She thought about opening a small store, where she could earn her own money without leaving the house, and this way be able to help with the household expenses.

She started off selling soft drinks and candy. Little by little she began to stock groceries, and over time her business has progressed. She says that she always gives her customers good service, as this ensures that that they shop there again.

A Vision Fund loan will give Brenda the opportunity to buy cookies, eggs, cooking oil, salt, sugar, rice, beans, coffee, spices, candy, toilet paper, safety razors, napkins, soft drinks, flavorings and canned goods for restocking her store.

She intends to continue investing her earnings in her business, as she wants to see it grow further and to see her sales increase.

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.
