She has a live-in partner and a son. She runs a small grocery store and provides telephone services to various destinations in the country for cell phones and local fixed line phones. She prefers cell phone calls. She recharges her cell phones with various amounts and leases them out for 0.50 céntimos a minute. She has been running the grocery store since 2000 and making cell phone calls for the last two years.

She is asking for a loan to stock the grocery store and to recharge her two cell phones.

In the photo, Lourdes and Pio are shown at their respective businesses. Because they left the group meeting early, they had their photos taken separately at their businesses later on. They had permission to leave the group early, before the meeting had ended. Lourdes has an ophthalmological problem, so she was a little embarrassed to look at the camera.

The other group members are taxi drivers, farmers and cattlemen; some raise small farm animals, especially guinea pigs, to sell and some are grocers.

She values the loan and commits to repay in a timely fashion.

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.
