La Nueva Esperanza Group
Mary has been in the business of selling tacos since she was 16. She says she began the business because a relative of her husband's had a restaurant-bar but after a while decided to close it. Mary's husband opened the business again to sell tacos. On this occasion, Mary is requesting a loan to buy soft drinks, gas, benches and chairs for her business. She enjoys her work and through much effort and hard work has been able to open four street vending locations. However, these are not her own places, but on loan, and Mary lives with the anguish that one day she will be ousted. Mary says "I only dream about having my own business in my house so we do not have to suffer like this".
Like Mary, the other members of the group also have their dreams and goals with their families, but what they want the most is to improve their lifestyles. The members of the group are Teodora and Cristina, who run taco stands, J Carmen who has a tire business, Juan Luis who has an Internet Café, Jose Juan and Francisco who will buy corn for tortillas, Isabel who will buy bedspreads and sheets, Pasucala who will buy costume jewelry, Imelda who will buy shoes, Arnulfo who will invest in his pastry business, Elena who will buy groceries for her store and Jacqueline, who will invest in her stationery store. All of the members are very happy and grateful to Vision Fund and KIVA for this loan which will be helpful to their businesses.

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.
