There exists a small group of enterprising woman in the community of Jobo. Emilia has a taxi service; Selene sells natural products; Lucina sells cosmetics; Elodia sells snacks. In this community the main source of employment is found in the fields, planting and growing sugar cane.

Emilia is 43 years old, is married with Agustín and they have one child. She only studied up to High School. Emilia says that she has had her taxi service for more than 7 years. It is difficult to get to the community as there is little transportation. So some people in the community stop on the outskirts of town and serve as collective taxis. She adds that she also makes special trips when her clients request it.

The loan from VisionFund would help her buy parts and make repairs to her taxi so she can continue with this service. Emilia would like to offer her family a better quality of life and that her son has the opportunity to study to become a professional.

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.
