Sra. Estela has been working in her grocery store for three years. She has succeeded with a lot of effort and ceaseless work.

The beginnings of her business were not easy. She began selling at the gate of a high school on an itinerant basis with very few things to sell. Saving small sums she succeeded in opening a shop and also considered joining EDAPROSPO, which provided a lot of help through loans she was able to invest in inventory.

She has succeeded in having a bigger and better stocked store. She has also been able to help with the education of her children so that they are professionals. What she wants for the future is to maintain her shop and stock it with all that it needs. She will use her current loan to supply it with merchandise. For a year and a half Estela has been a member of the “MUJERES RUMBO AL PROGRESO “(Women Bound for Progress). She is the treasurer, and she and her colleagues try to make progress with their respective businesses.

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.
