Buenas Amistad Group
In this Group: Maritza, Karin Milagros, Teodora Felicita, Griselda Geovana, Elita Hirene
Maritza is 24 years old. She is a young mother to two small children, who are her reason for living and for moving ahead. She is part of the "Buenas Amistad" ("Good Friendship") group, which is made up of five members. This group is on its third loan cycle and has demonstrated punctuality and responsibility.

Approximately one year ago, Maritza started a food business due to the need to confront her small children's expenses, since she has to raise them alone. She saw the opportunity to start a food business, which she has developed as a street vendor since she does not have the resources to rent a location, much less buy one. Little by little she has gotten customers and her good seasoning has helped her.

She will use the loan received to buy supplies she uses often in her food as well as plates and glasses, which are what she most needs in her business.

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.
