San Juan Masias Group
In this Group: Priscila Del Carmen, Mery Soledad, Yanderith Singler, Rommell Augusto Antoni, Delma Luz, Delia Gloria
Priscila is a member of the 'San Juan Masía' community bank. She is 55 years old, widowed, and has five children who are all now adults. Priscila has always worked very hard to provide her children with everything they need to live a decent life and has supported them in their studies. Her business is preparing and selling food. In the past, she rented a spot in her local market but she didn't sell much. For this reason, she decided to go out into the streets to sell her products. There she found a lot of customers who were mainly local workers.

Priscila works around 8 hours a day, traveling through different streets in the city. The money from this loan is very important to her because it will enable her to buy the ingredients she needs to prepare her food. In addition to her food business, Priscila also sews. In the future, she would like to have a sewing workshop and give up the food business as it is very demanding.

Priscila would like to thank those who will make her loan possible: both EDAPROSPO and Kiva lenders. She thanks them for helping her community bank.

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.
