This communal bank is called “Mujeres Emprendedoras” (Enterprising Women) and it’s composed of three brave women who are worthy of admiration who strive daily to move each of their families forward. The group president is María, a woman who defines herself as humble, honest, responsible and very hardworking. María is 32-year-old and lives with her three children and husband in the city of Latacunga.

María sells fruit sorbets throughout the city streets; it’s demanding work that María does with much love in order to help her household economy. María asked FODEMI for a loan to buy a freezer to maintain the quality and flavor of the sorbets she sells. María knows that this investment will help her increase business and her income will be improved as a result too. María’s dream is to continue growing with her business, to have her own sorbet shop and to continue supporting her children and give them education which is the most important thing for them to become upstanding citizens.

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.
