Los Vecinos Group
In this Group: Nelida J, Fidelia , Fidela, Jenny, Rene, Guadalupe, Alicia, Anabel , Aracely
Los Vecinos is the name of a group comprising nine members who organized and met up in order to found a group because they had many things in common, like working in retail and living in the same neighborhood. This group is based in the town of Tierra Blanca. Some people call this place "the sun's bride" because of its high temperatures. Its main source of employment is retail.

Guadalupe is one of the members of this group. She is 49 years old, completed secondary school, and is married to Enrique. She says she has run a small grocery store from her home for over fifteen years, and that she started her business because she wanted to make some extra money without neglecting her family. Since there were no grocery stores in her neighborhood, she thought it would be a good investment.

What Guadalupe likes the most about her business is that she is always in contact with people and always manages to make sales. Her business is open daily from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm and she would like to get a loan from Kiva and VisionFund because it would help her invest in purchasing rice, beans, oil, flour, soft drinks, cookies, soap, cold cuts, and canned goods.

She expects her business to prosper from this investment and that it will be visibly more well-stocked in order to attract more customers, increase her earnings, and improve her quality of life.

The other members of the group are: Nelida and Anabel, who both sell cosmetics; Fidelia, who sells hotdogs and hamburgers; Fidela, who sells tacos; Jenny and Aracely, who both sell lingerie; Rene, who sells shoes; and Alicia, who sells flowers.

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.
