Mario Alejandro is secretary of the "El Mirador” group (in the video being shown to the Kiva lenders, he is first on the left). It is a group made up of six members; all hard-working with a strong desire to progress.

Mario is 23, single, and studies business administration at university.

As he is a very enterprising young man, Mario is very eager to start his own business. So, after investigating the profitability and demand for a few businesses, he made up his mind to start a lingerie business.

He buys the products in the wholesale market and sells them in his own store. He only began a week ago, but is highly motivated and believes that with this business he is going to get enough income to finance his studies.

Mario will use the loan to buy lingerie products for his business, such as stockings, socks, tights, underwear, etc.

Mario's greatest dream is to complete his studies in business administration and to have a good home and a good family. He asks the Kiva investors to support his business and the businesses of other people who have the desire to succeed.

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.
