Aldea Cunda Group
In this Group: Yaned Santos, Gladys Leticia, Gonzalo
Gonzalo is a member of the solidarity group “Aldea Cunda”. He is 25 years old, married, and has two children. Sr. Gonzalo started a small convenience store a few years ago and it has grown gradually since then. His hours of operation are from 7:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M. His wife helps with managing the store. One of Gonzalo’s challenges is having to go into town to buy his products and transporting them back to his shop.

The loan Gonzalo is requesting will be used to restock his business with new merchandise. He will invest in the purchase of products such as rice, lard, beans, soap, detergent, dairy goods, soft drinks, snack foods, candies, and other items. He hopes that the support of this loan will enable him to increase his income and to submit his loan payments on time.

His dream is to improve his convenience store so that it becomes one of the best-stocked shops in the area. This is his first loan cycle with FAMA and he hopes to complete his payment commitments on time.

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.
