In this Group: Brenda Guadalupe , Juana Maria , Linda Yanette , Ma Bernabe , Ma De Jesus , Ma Victoria
The "Emprendedoras" (Enterprising Women) communal bank is made up of six women with initiative. In fact, they decided to call themselves this, because they consider themselves enterprising women, and want to keep their businesses going.

Bernabé is part of the group. She is 49, married, and the mother of three children, ages 33, 30 and 29. Approximately 18 years ago, she dreamed about having her own business in order to help her husband, but she couldn't leave her small children alone to go out selling. Currently she has a small grocery store.

Bernabé dreams of expanding her store so that it will be an established business, and of employing people to run it. This way, she will be able to assure her future and that of her family.

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.
