One of the members of this group is Delfa, who is in her third loan with her friends and partners in the Mujeres Luchadoras lending group. She likes her group because they are all kind people who continually support each other through good and bad. Delfa is 42 years, is widowed, and in her marriage, conceived 3 children ages 21, 16 and 11. Her first son is married and lives on his own. Her last two children are in school.

She sells a great variety of clothing, a business that has allowed her to help with her home, and is not the only income for all of the household expenses. She will use this loan to purchase clothing to expand her business. Her goal is to have a store to sell her products from.

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.
