In this Group: Margarita Esperanza, Johana Maria
The support group "En Nombre de Jesús" is comprised of Johana María and Margarita Esperanza. Johana has been selling cheese for over four years. She got involved in the activity when she was young because her mother did the same thing for a living, and later Johana decided to take over the business.

The loan is to buy curd, onion, vinegar, plastic bags and other products. Her dream is to set up a kiosk at the school so she can offer her products there.

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.
