Barrio El Riito Group
In this Group: Luisa , Maria Del Pilar , Antonia , Maria Dionicia , Maria Teresa , Elodia , Rosaura
The group "Barrio El Riito" consists of seven hardworking and responsible women who are working together as a group with Fundación Realidad for the first time. They chose the name for their group because they live near a small river that provides crystal-clear drinking water for the community. On this occasion, the members elected Doña Pilar to be the group representative. She is currently 27 years of age and has been in a common-law relationship for two years with her partner Alvaro. They have a son who does not attend school even though he enjoys learning. However, they lack the funds to send him to school.

Doña Pilar has a grocery store, so she is requesting a loan to restock her business with products she is lacking such as canned goods, milk, bread, eggs, detergents, and other items. Her store does not have a name, but it has been in existence for barely two years. The greatest challenge she faces is not having the resources to acquire more products. There is plenty of competition, so if her store does not have enough stock, it is very difficult for her business to attract customers. Pilar says she started her store because her partner lost his job some time ago. Somehow she found the means to start a business so that she could generate income to improve her quality of life. What she enjoys most about her business is being able to provide good service to her customers. Pilar's goal is to expand her store and turn it into a mini-supermarket with the intention of improving her quality of life and that of her family.

Sra. Pilar and the rest of her group are extremely grateful that they can invest in their businesses:
• Teresa will buy baby chickens and lambs.
• Luisa will buy lambs.
• Anita will buy corn for her animals.
• Rosaura will buy turkeys.
• Dionicia and Elodia will buy chickens and turkeys.

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.
