Greetings from Peru! I would like to introduce you to the Aguilas Group which is made up of ten members, the majority of whom know each other and have participated in the group for about six years.

Hilda is one of the members. She is 48 years old, separated from her husband, and has two children. She sells food, a business she began with help from her sister-in-law who encouraged her to work with her. They both used to deliver breakfasts to workers in various places. However, her sister-in-law became ill and left the business to Hilda. Currently Hilda runs it with help from her eldest daughter. They get up very early to take the food to their customers, most of whom work in a nearby shopping mall or offices. They serve juices, teas, quinua, and different types of sandwiches.

As the work is very hard, Hilda would like to have a permanent stall close to the place where they deliver the breakfasts. That way she wouldn’t have travel expenses and wouldn’t have to transport so much heavy food from her house.

Hilda’s income provides money for household expenses and also her children’s education. With the loan she will be able to buy a refrigerator which will be a great help as it will allow her to keep the food cold.

Hilda is very grateful for your help. In the photo she is wearing a black and white flowery top.

¡Saludos desde Perú! Les presento al grupo Las Aguilas

Este grupo está conformado por 10 socias. La mayoría se conocen y participan dentro del grupo cerca de 6 años, Hilda es uno de sus miembros. Ella tiene 48 años, es separada con 02 hijos. Hilda se dedica a la venta comidas, empezó en este negocio gracias a su cuñada que le incentivo a trabajar con ella, ambas repartían desayuno a trabajadores de varios lugares, con el tiempo por motivos de salud su cuñada le dejo el negocio a ella, en la actualidad Hilda cuenta con la ayuda de su hijo mayor; ambos se levantan muy temprano para llevar y repartir desayuno a sus clientes que en su mayoría son trabajadores de una galería y oficinas cercanas, los pedidos que reparten son jugos, infusiones, quinua y sándwichs de todos los sabores. Su trabajo es muy sacrificado por eso le gustaría tener un puesto de venta estable cerca al lugar donde reparte los desayunos, así no gastaría en movilidad y no tendría transportar tanto peso desde su casa, por otro lado su trabajo le permite solventar los gastos de su familia sobretodo los estudios de sus hijos, gracias a su préstamo podrá comprarse una refrigeradora que será de mucha ayuda para su negocio ya que esto le permitirá conservar frescos los alimentos que vende.
¡Hilda agradece su apoyo!

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.
