The Peñitas group is made up of six hard-working women. They decided to call the group "Peñitas" because that is the name of the area in which they live.

One group member, Enriqueta, whom they have affectionately nicknamed "Doña Queta," is a widow with a working daughter. She makes her living selling clothes and shoes in the city market. She started this business about eight years ago because she needed to move forward after having been widowed.

Doña Queta wants to stock more shoes and aspires to have a larger venue so as to secure her future after she retires.

Additional Information

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.
