This group is called “Edén” (Eden) and it’s located half an hour from downtown Copainalá. It has three women members each with her own activity. They live in a pretty place outside of town that one must reach on foot.

María Cristina was interviewed. She’s 51-years-old and is a housewife married to Julio with whom she has five children who are all now married living outside of the community. She’s been working buying merchandise like sugar, beans, oil and eggs, among others to stock her grocery store where she’s been working for two years. She comments that she does well because she earns household income this way. She’s a very cheerful woman who is affectionately called “Doña Cristi” and it’s said in her community that she’s a very good woman who they also say is the neighborhood’s mother because they come to her for everything.

What she wants is that with this loan and her business she will be able to continue working as long as God gives her life as well as to be able to buy shelving to display her merchandise.

The other group members are María del Carmen who will buy Fuller and Jafra products and Romelia who will also buy merchandise for her grocery store.

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.
