Lasso El Vergel Group
In this Group: Gladys Elizabeth, María, Blanca, María
The solidarity group Lasso El Vergel is formed by four people that have the same purpose, which is to triumph in life and get their families ahead. In this group the president is Gladys because she is a responsible, hard-working person with big aspirations in life. Gladys is widowed and lives alone with her two children in the city of Latacunga in the province of Latacunga.

Gladys works alone in the rearing and sale of pigs. This business is the only source of economic income that her family has and with this she has to maintain all of her home expenses, like food, schooling of her children, etc. It is the first loan that she is carrying out with Fodemi, which will be used to buy feed for the pigs, and to buy young pigs to rear and later reproduce and sell, which will help to improve her income and her quality of life.

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.
