Geremias, 51, is married and has three children. He has always been a very responsible father and worker. He has worked in the restaurant sector for a long time and his work has gotten the public's attention as he has always been attentive in learning how to prepare the different dishes that the restaurants offer. His goal has always been to have his own food business even though his family has discouraged him many times to not follow through with this project. He left his job and made his dream a reality by buying some equipment to start his business. He works in his home and every day brings him business. He has had much success with selling hamburgers, chicken wings, etc. What differentiates him from his competitors is the quality of his products and the good service he provides to his customers. What he hopes to accomplish later on is finishing the construction on his house and putting in a soda fountain. His loan will be used to buy products such as oil by the gallon, hamburgers, hot dogs, etc. He hopes to save and increase his profits. Geremias is currently the president of the community bank, La Fortaleza, which includes 12 members.

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.
