This group is located in a sugarcane region.

Alberto is a young single man who has been working in brickwork for a little more than two years. He says that he did not have the opportunity to continue studying, so he learned a trade. He works in this trade to earn money to be able to contribute to the expenses of his home in his parents' house.

His job consists of the construction of homes, walls, roofs, and corridors. He said, "What I like the most about my job is that I partake in the building of homes, and it's something beautiful to see as a family gradually lifts themselves up, and in passing, I earn money which will help my family"

Additional Information

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.
