Hello, Good Morning! Greetings from Perú.

Today I’d like to present the “San Martín-Ixcuchaca” group to you, a group that’s been working with Edaprospo Group for a year. They joined together because they all worked in the same locality and all work as independent workers who dream with improving their income and thus also improve their way of life at home.

One of this group’s members is Maritza, 37, who helps her husband support the family with income she earns from sales in her restaurant. She lives with her husband and two daughters. The older one attends public school and the second one is school age. The older one helps her mother in the business in her free time and when she’s on school vacation. Maritza’s dream is to provide her two daughters with professions so that they can support themselves from income earned from their professions.

The loan Maritza is requesting is to buy groceries like rice, sugar, noodles and oil in quantity in order to have higher profits from her income. Maritza is very happy to know that foreigners help her and her group to carry out their dreams which is why she says: “Thank you for the support from Edaprospo and from Kiva lenders.”

Maritza is wearing a black and White sweater, Brown pants and is carrying a small, knit, black and white purse; she’s third from the right.

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.
