Dúo Jeremias Group
In this Group: Elsa , Brenda Elizabeth
This is the group "Dúo Jeremias" [Jeremiah Duo]. This duo includes Brenda. She is from Sumpango and is the mother of a family. Every day, she gets up very early to be able to do her work, which is buying and selling vegetables. Brenda gets up at three in the morning, since at the market where she sells, the people are accustomed to start buying at a very early hour. For this reason, she has to get up early and take advantage of the time and thereby gain higher earnings.

Now that Christmas time is coming, the sales are growing. For this reason, she is requesting a loan to be able to buy more vegetables so that she can sell more than usual. She promises to comply with each payment if this loan is authorized.

This is the second time that they have requested a loan. They have been very responsible.

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.
