The El Suspiro communal bank is comprised of 14 people. Each one of them has a business activity. The group is located in a community that is known for having a warm climate and for being surrounded by rubber trees.

Dulce Maria, age 24, only went to school up to the third year of secondary school. She is married to Alejandro, and they have a son who is only one month old.

Dulce Maria tells us that a little over two years ago she decided to open a small business selling spare parts for bicycles and automobiles. She did this to earn a little extra money and to help her husband with the household expenses. Thank God that it has gone very well for her. She has the only spare parts business in the community, and sales have been good.

She will use her loan to buy spare parts for bicycles and automobiles in order to restock her business. She hopes to prosper from this investment in her business. She also hopes to increase her income in order to continue investing in her business.

In the future she would like her son to have the opportunity to go to school.

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.
