Sra. Sara is the secretary of the María Auxiliadora Communal Bank, which has been working with EDAPROSPO-PROSPERIDAD for more than 2 years. The group has grown over time, with the members completing their goals and proposing new ones.

Sara is the mother of 6 children. Even though they are adults, they still look to their mother for company or as a voice of support that will listen to them. Like most mothers, she was a homemaker when her children were still young. However, she had the desire to do other things. After many years passed, her oldest son began working at Topy Top (a Latin American chain of apparel stores) because his partner was about to give to their child and he wanted to be responsible. After the baby was born, Sara’s son developed a serious case of bronchitis. Being a good mother, Sara began selling prepared meals during his recovery so that she could purchase his medicines and look after her daughter-in-law and grandchild.

Even though this was a difficult time, everything turned out well in the end. Sara continues to sell meals out of her home because she found it to be an easy and enjoyable way to make money. She spends most of the time working out of her kitchen, utilizing her refrigerator and cooking utensils. Sara now hopes to open both a mini-market and a restaurant. With her hard work and perseverance, she knows she can fulfill this goal.

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.
