Estoy Confiando Group
In this Group: Kenia, Silvia, Zelenia
Estoy Confiando (I Trust) is a group composed of three hardworking and resourceful women. They are native of Masaya, a very old settlement whose existence dates back to the aboriginal days. Agriculture is the main economic activity of the village while craftsmanship (wicker made items, carpentry, shoemaking) is its main commercial one.
Karina is the group’s coordinator and she started working by selling plastic bottles to be used for recycling. Thanks to what she has earned from this she has diversified her activity and has started engaging in creating wicker chairs together with her husband who is a carpenter. To make one chair she spends between 400 and 500 cordobas approximately.
The other members of the group are Zelania, who has been selling “nactamales” (a typical dish made of corn and pork) and fried pork for 2 ½ years and Silvia, who has been selling used clothes for 1 year.

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.
