The “Las mujeres para el desarrollo D. Villa Madrid” (Women for the Development of Villa Madrid) village bank started when a number of neighborhood women came together in the city of Mariano Roque Alonso.
It's a tight-knit group, with some members who are strong leaders who help the others move forward, and some who are more timid but who want to grow as people and as a team, even though it can be challenging.
Mrs. Gladys C. is very dedicated to her family and makes a lot of sacrifices for them. She has a small business selling everything from fruits and vegetables to household cleaning products. She decided to open her small store to increase her income for her family. Before opening the store, days would go by when she didn't even have enough food to feed herself. It is for this reason that she wants to progress, so that none of her children have to suffer, can study, and make a decent salary. She'd like to receive this loan so she and her family can prosper.

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.
