Greetings from Peru! This is the Sunflowers of Algodonal Group which has eleven members who all know each other.

Rodolfo is a new member and the only man. He’s 51 years old, single, and has two children. He earns his living selling cooking items such as dishes, cooking utensils, and glasses. He’s had this business for many years and sells the products in different markets in the capital city and in the provinces. Thanks to this work he’s been able to support his family and give them the basics for a tranquil life.

Rodolfo will use the money from the loan to buy a large quantity of cooking utensils and sell them in the provinces. His dream is to have his own store in a market and have enough money to pay for his children to complete their education and get good jobs.

Rodolfo is very grateful to Kiva for the help provided to his whole group.

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.
