Gs Mi Buen Jesus Group
In this Group: Benita, Santos Isabela, Lidia Yesenia
Benita, 53, is married and lives with her husband in their home in the community of San Lorenzo. An adopted daughter is dependent on her. For two years she has had a grocery store where she sells soft drinks, dairy products, juices, staples, vegetables, cards, and other things.

Benita is requesting 17,000.00 [HNL] to buy corn, beans, rice, lard, detergent, eggs, sausage, dairy products, and soft drinks. With the support of this loan she plans to improve her income, and her business will grow as well.

Benita is the leader of the solidarity group. Her colleagues (Lidia, who sells food and candy, and Santos, who sells used clothing in the neighborhoods of San Lorenzo) have done well in naming Benita the leader because she is the one who takes care of their payments.

Benita's desire is to improve her business and for her family to be well, because after the death of her father and the hospitalization of her son for more than five months she has been in a bad way and off her stride. Her dream is to improve and for her colleagues to improve.

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.
