* not pictured
Alejandrina is a member of the group "Trabajando en Armonía" [Working in Harmony] and is 52 years old. She is married (common-law) and has 4 children. Alejandrina works selling candies and ice cream. She has set up her small business in her house where she has a glass display of the products she sells. Sometimes she also offers them as a street vendor.

Thanks to her work she can help support her family; more than anything help with the schooling of her children. She sacrifices much for her work because she walks a lot and dedicates 12 hours a day to her work.

She was taught how to make sweets by her mother-in-law, which are very good. Her faithful customers are children, transportation workers, and the public in general.

Alejandrina will use this loan to buy ice cream and ingredients to make the sweets she sells and keep working.

Alejandrina is happy that other people are helping her and her group. She is thankful to Kiva for allowing them to progress and be better people. In this photo she is the first one on the left (towards the back) in the light blue pants.

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.
