Norma is a member of the Camino al Éxito group. She's a single mother who takes care of two minor children who attend school.

She earns a living making pastry. She has steady customers like bakeries and markets where she sells bread pudding, flan, and cakes that she herself makes. This business supports her family's educational and food expenses. She also works as a cook in a country club on the weekend.

Her dream is to improve her house so her children will be more comfortable.

She'll invest the loan in buying construction materials for her home.

The group is grateful to the Kiva lenders. Norma's the second person from the left; she's wearing a flowered shirt.

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
