In this Group: Teresa De Jesus, Socorro
The “El Realejo” Group is made up of Teresa De Jesús and Socorro, both of whom have different businesses. Teresa is 31 years old, has a one-year-old son, and for more than six years has had a small grocery store. She needs a loan for working capital. Conversely, Socorro has bought and sold clothing for more than five years. She began her business with her own money, but with the little money she has to invest she cannot purchase sufficient merchandise. So, she has joined with her friend to request a loan to keep their businesses active during the Christmas season.

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.
