The El Aguacate lending group is made up of eight female members and two male members who live in the Monay en Cuenca sector. This area is surrounded by vegetation. Due to its growing population, it is a mix of city and countryside. Its people mostly work in animal husbandry or in the city doing different activities that help them to afford their household expenses. Their challenge is to provide their children with a better future and better job opportunities. They still maintain the culture and traditions of their villages.

One of the members of this group is Lidia. This is the first loan that she has sought with her friends and partners in the lending group. She was invited to the group by a friend. Lidia is 39 years old, is married and has three children from her marriage aged 19, 18 and 13. Her first daughter is studying in the city's college, her second son is also in college and works to cover the expenses of his education, and her third daughter is in high school in the city. Her husband works as a mason. They do not own their own home, and are currently renting. For the past three months, Lidia has had her own business. She sells a variety of food like grilled meat, green plantain tortillas, corn pudding, and more products. She works in this business from Monday to Saturday with out fixed hours.

She will use the money from the own to purchase a cart to sell "salchipapas" (sliced sausages and french fries mixed together with a coleslaw on the side), and expand her business. Her dream is to have her own home.

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.
