Zeferina is a member of a group called “Las Palomas.” She is 47 years old and has a secondary education. She is married to Jorge, who is a mechanic and they have two children, who are now adults.

Zeferina notes that for more than 30 years her husband has been a mechanic. He repairs the motors of boats. She says they decided to open this shop because her community is located on the banks of the Cerro de Oro reservoir where many people fish. In addition, there was no other shop of this kind in their community.

She notes that the shop has done well because it is one of the few shops that exist in the area and many fishermen come to her husband so that he can maintain and repair their boats.

Zeferina is very happy because through this business they have succeeded in helping their family get ahead and in building their house. A loan from the Vision Fund would help them to purchase a variety of replacement parts for motors and oil.

In the future she would like to open a large repair shop in her home.

The group, Las Palomas, is composed of 7 happy and enterprising people besides Zeferina. Her fellow members are:

Martha, who sells snacks
Alejandra, who sells meals
Virginia, who sells snacks
Maria Angelina, who sells perfume
Reynalda, shoe seller

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.
