The “Flor de Naranjo” (Orange Blossom) Association is a group of women who are part of the “Juan Pablo II” Community Center, which has been in existence for 12 years. They have been brought together because they need operating capital to continue their business activities, improve their families’ incomes, and supplement their spouses’ earnings. They know that competition exists and are constantly improving so that they can keep up with the marketplace.

The members have different businesses such as selling clothes, groceries, vegetables, cosmetics, and stuffed animal toys. Others manufacture shoes and tapestries. They all need a loan in order to buy merchandise or tools (such as shoe trees) needed for their businesses.

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.
