The committee called “Primavera” (Spring) was started two years ago with the effort and support of a group of active women who work together to keep their committee going. This committee has become known locally as a group of hardworking women. It should be mentioned that this group always rises above any difficulties encountered by its members. They all work with great commitment to complete their weekly payments and desire to continue working together.

One of the members is Sra. Luciana S., who engages in sewing and embroidery. She owns embroidery machines that she uses to produce the designs selected by each of her customers. Luciana has many customers and her sewing workshop has become a very busy place. She is pleased with her business and looks forward to expanding her workshop by acquiring more machines and staff.

The loan she is requesting will be invested in her business. Luciana will acquire materials that she utilizes on a daily basis such as thread, special needles in different sizes, various fabrics, and other supplies.

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.
