Esperanza has given Marcia five loans already and she has successfully paid back all of them. She is a very hard worker and her business continues to do well. With this next loan, Marcia hopes to continue progressing. She dreams that she can provide a good education for her children. She wants them to go to college and become professionals so that their lives will be even better than hers.

Under this arrangement, each member of the group supports one another and is responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members if someone is delinquent or defaults.
