This group of 8 hardworking, kind entrepreneurs is called “Los Girasoles” (Sunflowers). It’s located on the shores of the Cerro de Oro dam and the main economic activities are bream sales and commerce.

María de Jesús is one of the group members. She’s 51-year-old and only attended elementary school; she’s single.

She relates that she’s always been a working woman. Since she was little her parents taught her that work is the only way to get ahead.

María de Jesús works selling live and butchered chickens; she’s been doing this for more than 30 years. When she started this activity her intention was to move her children forward and thanks to her work and effort she did so. She started out making small sales at home and as years have gone by her business has become more popular and she’s expanded it. Currently, in addition to selling at home she also delivers chicken to some establishments.

She has requested this loan to buy chickens to continue with her sales. In future, she’d like her business to continue to grow and to have more places to deliver chickens to in order to improve her quality of life.

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.
