The locals, like the "Las del Polígono" group members, are friendly and good people who are preserving the culture and traditions of their towns. The people here make a living form raising animals, in farming, and in business. Some travel daily to work in other jobs in the city.

One member of this group is Transito de Jesús. This is her first loan, which she is taking out alongside her friends and colleagues in the "Las del Polígono" group. All the groups members are very good friends and their common goal is overcome problems.

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.
