Verónica B., treasurer of the Nevaditas group of the Alto Lima Center, has been with the group for about one year and is 27 years old. Recently, her husband passed away and she is now left to care alone for her two children. To sustain her family, she sells cosmetics every day in the city of El Alto and needs this loan to purchase merchandise from Desaguadero because she can acquire it there at a lower price. Like Verónica, the other members of the group also have their own businesses such as selling clothing, potatoes, artifacts, school materials, and fruit. Others make clothing items like jackets, and knit clothing with Alpaca wool. They all need the loan to purchase commodities and raw materials, and continue working on 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.
