Orquideas Group
In this Group: Wilma, Jose, Ernestina
The group “Orquídeas” is composed of three admirable persons that get ahead in life thanks to their entrepreneurial spirit and the love they feel for their families. Its members are respected by their community because they are seen as role models.

The group’s president is Mrs. Wilma, a kind, joyful, enterprising and hardworking woman. Wilma is married and has two small children that she adores. Wilma started raising livestock (pigs in particular) as a way of helping with the household economy. It is a demanding business but also a profitable one and it allows her to help at home and take care of her children.

Wilma is requesting a loan at FODEMI to invest in buying more white pigs to raise and sell. With this investment, Wilma will have more animals to sell and will improve her family’s income.

Wilma’s dream is to see her children grow to be persons of good character. She would also like to build her house in the new piece of land, keep her animals and take better care of them.

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.
