Sandra Luz C. Calderón, 27, is single and has a daughter. She is the Secretary of the "Jesús D. Nazareth" communal bank.

She started working several years ago selling “anticuchos” (skewered, grilled meat) and home-maD. food on weekends at whatever markets occurred in Yauris because she had to earn money to pay for her university studies because the little economic help she got from her mother and step-father wasn’t enough.

She was about to graduate when she became pregnant and when the father of her child found out he abandoned her in her fourth month of pregnancy because he already had another family. Her mother helped her pay the costs associated with the delivery. Today, her daughter is the motivating force behind everything Sandra does.

Once her daughter was born she was able to finish her studies in Education and she took a 6-month position. When that contract ended she started to look for another position that was commensurate with her studies but, because she lacked experience, found no available vacancies. Due to her daughter’s needs she had to work at several jobs in a variety of shifts. She is now working as a street vendor selling juices and has been doing well. Her wish is to set up a juice bar.

(In the photo, Sandra is in the center of the group wearing a black and white sweatshirt).

The loan will be to rent a stand to sell fruit juices.

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.
