Señora Emelida is a very enterprising woman, who is dedicated to her 3-year-old business selling groceries. It is located in her home, and her customers are mainly people living in the area. She gets up very early to attend to her business, and also sells creole hens' eggs, curd cheese, corn and beans. She is very popular because she sells such varied items.

Emelida is requesting 3,000.00 lempiras to buy corn, beans, sugar, milk and bread to stock her business and give it a boost. Her dream is to to able to buy a refrigerator, because there are products she would like to sell but that need to be kept cold so that they don't go off. She is requesting the loan as part of the following group of people:

Delmy, who has made a living selling silver, clothing and shoes for three years.
Nely, who has made a living selling sausage rolls for one year.
Santos, who has made a living selling doughnuts for one year.
Elea, who has made a living selling tortillas for 16 years.

None of them have enough capital for their businesses and have come together to show that there is strength in unity.

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.
