El Terrenito De La Cebolla Group
In this Group: Jose, Elsa, Tandayamo
This solidarity group consists of three people who strive to fulfill their dreams and improve their families’ quality of life through hard work and sacrifice. It is for this reason that they are requesting this current loan. They will buy onion seeds of good quality so that they can improve production. In addition, they will begin planting on another small plot of land so that they can achieve the largest harvest they have ever had. This will enable them to generate more income so that they can satisfy the needs of their families.

The woman who appears in the photo with a green vest and silver colored skirt is not a member of the solidarity group; she is the mother of Sr. Jose and helps her son with his agriculture business. The solidarity group president is Sr. Jose. He defines himself as a hardworking, humble, and responsible person who has the unending love of his family and neighbors. These attributes are the reason why Jose is greatly admired by his compatriots.

Jose’s dream is to become a major onion producer. He hopes to have a large piece of land where he can plant and harvest his own onion crops that are of good quality. Jose would use the earnings to provide a college education for his children.

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.
