Sorpresa Group
In this Group: Adelina, Juana, Letcia, Noe, Juliana, Benita
The Sorpresa group is made up of 5 hard-working women, who do whatever is possible to provide their families with a better quality of life, and one man. The group members are Dona Adelina, Juana, Juliana, Benita and Noé; all of the members are applying for this loan to invest it in buying lambs. The group name was chosen by Lety, who is also part of the group. She says that they decided to use this name because the day that the institution called at the house to invite them to apply for their loan, she was very surprised by it and she thought that this was a good choice for a name. Dona Lety says that she is 38 years old and she has been married to Jose for 19 years. In the family that they have created together they have 4 children who are all currently studying. Lety says that she raises lambs to sell: she buys them when they are young and raises them until they are large, strong and fattened, then she sells them on to people who grill them to sell. Dona Lety says, 'The bigger my lambs get, the more money I will earn although often my greatest difficulties come when the animals get sick and lose a lot of weight, or even when they die and that means I lose my whole investment and earnings. However, thanks to the support provided by the institution, which tell us how to care for our lambs, I have had a lot of help and I have learned things that I never knew before'. This time Dona Lety is applying for this loan to buy grazing lambs and food to nourish them. She tells us that she likes caring for her lambs because her mother taught her how to do it and now she has been able to support her family economically, which proves that her earnings have helped her a lot. She has used her earnings to improve her house; next she would like to build an entrance hall on to her home. Dona Lety and the rest of the group are very grateful to the institution and to Kiva for the loans that they grant and all the services they provide, such as the training and the discounts which are great, Dona Lety says while smiling, 'To me, the discounts are a great help as with the money that I save, I will be able to be buy her children's graduation dress and an extra little gift.'

Additional Information

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.
