Las Cruces Group
In this Group: Nilda Marisel, Evangelina Andres, Maria Tomasa, Reina Maria , Ester
Nilda Marisel S. G. is married, 35 years old, and studied up to the second year of elementary school. She has 5 children, 3 of whom are studying.

Nilda is a housewife and her husband works as a laborer. Nilda requires her loan to buy chickens that she can fatten and then sell. With this in mind, she decided to get together some friends and neighbors to create a group so that they could request a loan to use as working capital. The members of this group carry out a range of business activities such as selling chickens, raising chickens and raising pigs. They hope that through their loans they will improve their living conditions and no longer remain itinerant as they have been up until now.

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.
