Good Afternoon! This is Jasmin, a young woman of 24 years, who belongs to the communal bank "San Judas Tadeo."

Jasmin is married and has a 4 year-old child. This is the first time that she has taken a loan from EDAPROSPO, and because of this she is very excited.

Jasmin has had a business preparing and selling food for 4 months. At her eatery she serves lunches (a soup and a second dish), soft drinks, and other food that she cooks in her house. At her place of business she has a small room where her customers can sit; they are mainly neighbors and people who work in a nearby factory.

With this loan, Jasmin wants to invest in her business. She plans to buy food at wholesale, plates, covers, and paint for the walls of her eatery.

In addition to her business, Jasmin is the main singer in an orchestra that plays cumbia, merengue and other types of Peruvian music. Everyone who has had the opportunity to hear her perform agrees that Jasmin has an amazing voice. Her main dream is to continue to practice so that she can become a better singer.

Jasmin is the girl at the center of the second row who speaks in the video. Jasmin appreciates the support that is being provided to her!

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.
