This group is called “Los Perseverantes VIP” and is made up of 15 entrepreneurs who have businesses including clothing, cosmetics, and food sales. They all live in the Quilicura community of Santiago. Daniel Sotelo, who is shown standing and is the fourth from left to right in the photo sells fast food, sandwiches and lunches. He says that he has a cart in the commercial sector (Industrial park) and all of his customers are those workers from these companies.

Daniel works from Monday through Friday. He is already at his place of work when the sun comes up and is preparing all sorts of food for his customers.

He buys all of his supplies in the central market in La Vega, known for selling at very good prices.

He will use the money from this loan to buy a churrasquera (to make churrascos). This will allow him to prepare orders quickly.

His dream is to have a restaurant and personally provide financially for his family. What motivates him the most to keep this business is to buy a home of his own because they live at his in-laws’ house. He is proud to say that his oldest son has a scholarship.

Daniel is very grateful to the assistance from Fondo Esperanza. He tells us that they have made it easy for him to grow his small business and grow as a small businessman. He receives support and has learned important values, and has matured as a person.

Quilicura is a community that is part of Santiago, the capital of Chile, located in the extreme northeast of the metropolitan region. The origin of the name comes from Mapudungun (Mapuche language): “kila” means “three” and “kura” means “rock,” from where the name Quilicura is derived. It means “three rocks,” a name given by the first inhabitants of this valley, referring to the three mountains that are perfectly visible and delineate the community.

Quilicura es una comuna perteneciente a Santiago, capital de Chile, ubicada en el extremo noroeste de región metropolitana. El origen del nombre de la comuna viene del mapudungun (lengua mapuche): "kila", que significa “tres” y "kura" que significa “piedra”, por lo que se deduce que el nombre de Quilicura equivale a "tres piedras", como el nombre que le dieron los primeros habitantes de este valle en referencia a los tres cerros que son perfectamente visibles y que delimitan la comuna.

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.
