Gs Denis Group
In this Group: Denis Omar, Juan Francisco, Gloria Cecilia
Denis is an enterprising person working in his community. His main source of income is his business, where he sells and repairs coffee pulpers. He has been doing this for fifteen years. He has a small shop set up in his home, and his customers are mainly people from the mountainous areas of Jamastran. These machines take the pulp out of coffee beans, and since they get constant use during the season, Denis is in charge of repairing them.

Denis is requesting this loan in order to buy materials like sheet metal, soldering electrodes, and other items for his shop. His dream is to have a larger shop and all the necessary tools.

He is requesting the loan as a group, alongside the following people: Juan works in retail and has run a small grocery store from his home for two years. Gloria has three hens and has been working selling eggs for two years. None of them have enough capital to meet their customers' demand, and they want to get ahead with support from Prisma and Kiva.

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.
