Consuelo Group
In this Group: Judith Elena , Brunilda Del Carmen , Consuelo Del Carmen, Maribel Del Socorro
This group is made up of four successful small business women. One of these is Brunilda who is 58 years old and a single mother of five children, most of whom are adults. She has been making tortillas in her home for the past four years and has been with ADIM for six years.

She started by selling vegetables in her house. Then she had the idea to sell tortillas because there were few businesses selling tortillas in her community and she earns a good income from it. She will use the loan to purchase basic ingredients such as corn, firewood, quicklime and beans.

Other members of the group are Consuelo who sells Avon and Zermat cosmetics, Judith who has been selling clothing and perfume for nine years and Maribel who sells various new clothing.

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.
