San José Group is located in a small town surrounded by sugar cane fields. At the edge of town there's a small arroyo that rises during the rainy season, so it's difficult to get to this community. The main economic activity is growing sugar cane and the majority of the residents work as day laborers.

Susana, 54, is one of the members of this group. She didn't have the opportunity to go to school; she only learned to write a little and to do sums. She's married to Juan, and currently they live alone in their house because their children are married.

Susana says she had never worked because she only tended to her house. More than five years ago, though, with the support of her husband she opened a small grocery store in her house to earn an additional income. She says what she likes most about her job is earning her own money without neglecting her home. Also, she's always in contact with people.

A loan from VisionFund will allow her to buy milk, eggs, detergent, refreshments, sweets, oil, beans, toilet paper, napkins, cookies, soup, coffee, and sugar to restock her business.

She wants her business to grow with this investment and have a greater variety of products so her customers always find what they're looking for.

These are the other members of the group: Guadalupe raises pigs; Rutilo sells tacos; Eva sells refreshments; Irene raises pigs; Guillermina raises pigs; Pascuala sells chicken; and Eutimio sells tacos.

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.
