In this Group: Yanet , Teresa , Maria Del Pilar , Teresa
Yanet is one of the members of the group Flor de Caña, which is formed of four women. Each of them carry out a business activity in order to help their husbands get their families ahead. This group is located in a community which is known for its hard working people. As there is a lagoon there, the majority of its families make a living fishing.

Yanet is 27 years old. She only studied up to secondary level and is married to Freddy, who works as a day labourer. They have two children; Ingrit, who is 9 and Jamil, who is 8. Both study at primary school in their community. Yanet tells us that a little over six years ago she decided to start working and with the support of her husband opened a small paper shop to be able to help with the household bills. She has her shop in a building next to her house and she opens every day from 8 in the morning until 8 at night. She says that thanks to God her business has been successful and little by little she has made it grow by investing more into her business. Presently, she also sells gifts.

She needs this loan in order to invest in buying white paper, pencils, pens, colours, plasticine, card and gifts to stock her shop.

She hopes that with this investment her business will continue progressing, as she wants her children to have the opportunity to study a professional career in the future.

The other members of this group are:

Teresa, who sells mojarra [bream]
Maria del pilar who sells footwear
and Teresa who sells bream and beef enchilada

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.
