Trabajando Unidas Group
In this Group: Lucia, Rosa, Paulina, Haydee, Maria Veronica, Nelida Diana, Carlos Augusto

Lucia, 49, is a member of the “TRABAJANDO UNIDAS” (Working Together) communal bank which has been in existence for two years. Lucia has been President for the last 7 months. The seven members currently in the group chose the bank name because the group must have unity and work. The communal bank has been collaborating with Edaprospo-Prosperidad for two years.

Lucia used to belong to a different communal bank but she dropped out of it and through a friend joined Trabajando Unidas. Lucia is at the far left of the photo wearing a light yellow polo shirt and cream colored vest; her pants are light lilac.

Lucia has 4 children; two are independent and two still depend on her. Lucia started making food and marmalade to sell and she knitted woolens sweaters in order to support the two children that still live with her as well as to build and furnish her house.

She’d like to have capital to increase her production of food, marmalade and sweaters.

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.
