Greetings from Peru! This is the Solidaridad group.

Rosa, 75, is a member of the group and one of its most enthusiastic founders. She's a widow and lives in her house with her children, who are married. Rosa opened a small grocery store in her house to pay for her own expenses and not be a burden for her family. She sells all types of staples in her store. She also makes tamales on the weekend to sell to her neighbors and friends in the neighborhood. They're obligatory for breakfast, so she has a lot of customers who even request them in quantity for various events.

With the requested loan she wants to buy products to improve her store.

She dreams of converting her store into the biggest in the area in the future.

Rosa's grateful to all the people who make her loan possible. To all those investors she would like to say thank you very much for supporting her communal bank!

Rosa's wearing a purple jacket and brown pants.

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.
