Virgen De La Puerta Group
In this Group: Dominga Isabel, Gudelia, Milagros, Eileen Ana, Maria Rita, Juan Carlos, Anne Ysabel
The Communal Bank “Virgen D. L. Puerta” (Our Lady of the Door) consists of seven enterprising and responsible members. Dominga is one of the group members. She is 35 years old and a single mother of four dependent children. For the past year, Dominga has been selling chicken soup in Chosica as a street vendor. She started this business out of necessity because she wanted to improve her quality of life since she must be both father and mother to her children. Dominga is responsible for all of her children’s expenses and does not receive any assistance from their father. However, she says that she presses forward because she wants them to become professionals. Dominga continues to work hard and not lose faith in order to achieve her goals.

She is requesting a loan to buy ingredients (such as noodles, chicken, and potatoes) that she lacks so that she can continue preparing more chicken soup to sell. Also, she will buy a few things that her children are lacking. Dominga wants to prepare one of her children for university since he has already finished high school. She will do everything possible to make sure that he is enrolled no later than May.

The main photograph shows five members of the group since Sra. Milagros and Sra. Gudelia were not able to attend the disbursement meeting. Their photos were taken separately at the time of their respective disbursements.

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.
