The communal bank "Venus" is comprised of six kind, hard-working entrepreneurs who all carry out some type of business in order to offer their families a better quality of life.

Antonieta is one of the members of the group. She is 44, has a high school education, and is a single mother of a seven-year-old daughter named Dulce who attends primary school. Antonieta says she has been selling groceries for eight years out of the small store she has at home. She claims that when she began the business it was a small stationery supplies store but, little by little, she began selling groceries and expanded the business.

Antonieta is very happy about being able to have her own source of income and give her daughter a better quality of life. In her spare time she sells cosmetics by catalogue to earn extra income. She says "what I like most about my business is that I am in touch with people all day while also attending to my daughter".

A loan from Visión Fund will give her the opportunity to buy cookies, soft drinks, oil, soup, coffee, sugar, beans, rice, toilet paper, juices, sweets, canned goods, pencils, erasers, notebooks and pens. She hopes this investment in a variety of products will attract customers and increase her profit so she can pay for her daughter's continued education.

The other members of the group are:

Teresa, food sales
Lilia, meat sales
Donatos, meat sales
Ciriaco, bread sales
Maria Eugenia, shoe sales

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.
