The Rosas de Ballivian group is in its fourth loan cycle and is made up of returning members and new members. The group's members have an excellent payment history with no payment problems and the group's meetings have always taken place on time. In the current loan cycle we expect the same excellent payment behavior. This group is almost a family with each member working in a different business. The group's president, Elsa, works selling prepared food, Patricio is a chauffeur who owns his own car service business, Armando sells sports clothing and Angélica is a street vendor. Yovana, Violeta, Viviana, María Elena, Dominga and Emma own stores whileTrinidad sells prepared food and Felicidad sells sweaters.

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.
