Paila De Agua Group
Jacqueline owns the stationary and shipping shop and began her business more or less three years ago by saving money from a previous job she had so that she could make her dream come true. She obtained a license from the city to open her store. In the meantime, she has encountered a few difficulties along the way, such as having to take over sole responsibility for supporting her household. This has been difficult because she would have liked to have a little more help from other members of her family. However this does not mean she is not able to work hard for all the things she wants in life; rather it encourages her to continue excelling.
Jacqueline will use her loan to purchase more supplies for her stationary and shipping store. She is very pleased because the school year has started and she is sure she will have much more business. She is very grateful and happy to participate in Fondo Esperanza because they have taught her many things. She also believes that the most important thing in her life is to have the confidence to take risks so that she can make her dreams come true.

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.
