Loma Linda Group
This is Guillermo's first credit from FODEMI, and with the experience he has in his work, he is sure to be able to make progress and work toward the benefit of his community. Through agriculture, he can provide his neighbors with the opportunity to work with him. This loan will help him improve his production of yucca, sugar cane, lumber, and cocoa in his community. In addition, he wants to begin selling fresh fish.
Guillermo is part of the Chachi culture. In his group, there are ten people from his own community and nearby ones. He said that it took him about six hours to get to San Lorenzo from his village. For a rural farmer, this is a great opportunity since it doesn't require him to put his lands up against the loan and the requirements are minimal. It's also important to note traditional banks don't reach his communities.

GUILLERMO. Pertenece a la cultura Chachi. Y en su grupo de trabajo hay 10 personas de su propia comunidad y de otras cercanas.
Menciona que para llegar a San Lorenzo tarda alrededor de 6 horas desde su localidad. Y que para el campesino es una buena oportunidad ya que no se requiere poner sus tierras en garantía de préstamo y los requisitos son mínimos. Algo muy importante es que la banca tradicional no llega a las comunidades.

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.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
