In this Group: Ines, Fermina , Glafira , Maria Del Rocio , Blanca Nery , Juventino
"Los Soñadores" is the name of this six-member group - all the entrepreneurs here are happy and enterprising. Each one has their own business: Inés sells cattle; Fermina sells clothes and tamales; Glafira rents out a tractor and harvester; María del Rocío sells fizzy drinks and chicken; Blanca Nery sells clothes; and Juventino makes a living as a taxi driver. This group can be found in the sugar-growing region, where the main source of income is from working in the field, sowing and growing sugar cane.

Fermina is 48 years old. She completed only primary school and is now married to Cristino, with whom she has two children. Both their children are now working adults. Fermina tells us that, from a young age, her parents taught her to work in order to get ahead. When she married, she began making small sales so as to earn her own money and to support her husband with the household costs. She currently makes a living selling second-hand clothes for men and women. Fermina sells from door-to-door, to friends, neighbours and nearby communities. She also tells us that she is now known in her town, with people sometimes making orders. When she has leftover stock, Fermina lets her customers now and they come round to her house to buy clothes.

Once or twice a week Fermina also goes out to sell tamales in order to make a little extra money.

Fermina is applying for a loan from "Vision Fund" as she wants to invest in a variety of shirts, blouses, beach shoes, shorts, trousers and underwear.

In the future she hopes to continue investing in order to increase her profits and improve her quality of life.

The "Los Soñadores" group is grateful for this loan and the trust that "Vision Fund" has put in its members.

Additional Information

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.
