Bonita Luna Group
In this Group: Juana, Abel , Sara , Lluvia Luzandra, Candelaria, Daniela, Rosario
The “Bonita Luna” (Pretty Moon) group is composed of very hardworking, very cheerful people. There are seven members; one of them is a man and the rest are women. The members are people who have productive activities which is why they are requesting credit from the institution to be able to invest in their activities. For example, Abel will invest in raising and fattening up sheep, Rosario in a grocery store, Sara in her shoe shop, Lluvia in cleaning supplies, Candelaria and Daniela in chickens.

Juanita, as she’s affectionately called, is also a group member. She’s 47-years-old and lives in a free union with Francisco who for the moment works in the fields; they have two children who depend on them and are attending school. Juanita has had a grocery store for seven years and she relates that she stared out selling soft-drinks and eggs which were the products that sold the most and more easily because they are products that are consumed the most but later started to sell other things because the people in the community themselves would ask her why she didn’t sell other things that were indispensable for the homes of the members of the community.

Juanita relates that she’s gradually been growing. For example, she used to not have well-established site and now she does although at present she still needs a good display case because she places some things on a table; she also needs to buy a refrigerator to start selling dairy products and cold cuts that would be very conducive to her business’ growth.

Juanita said: “I would like my business to grow so that I can help my children finish professional careers so they can have better futures and not have to go through the difficulties we as parents are going through.”

Doña Juanita cuenta que poco a poco ha ido creciendo por ejemplo antes no tenía un lugar bien establecido ahora ya lo tiene solo que por el momento le hace falta un buen mostrador porque tiene una mesa donde pone algunas cosas también quiere le hace falta comprar un refrigerador para iniciar a vender lácteos y carnes frías lo que ayudaría mucho para poder crecer su tienda de abarrotes. Doña Juanita comento “Me gustaría que mi negocio creciera para poder ayudar a mis hijos para que ellos puedan terminar una carrera profesional y tengan un mejor futuro y no pasen por las mis dificultades que nosotros como padres estamos viviendo”.

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.
