Greetings from Perú! This is the "Santa Rosa de Lima" group.

Silvia has been a part of this group since the beginning; she entered upon invitation from a friend. Silvia is 31 years old, single and lives with her family. She makes a living selling lingerie and underwear. The majority of her customers are women, mainly neighbors, friends and those who have been recommended to her by others.

Silvia is happy with her business because it allows her to be economically independent and support her family. Her new loan will allow her to buy more clothing, above all new styles that her customers have requested. In the future she would like to open a store in a strategic location where many people would come to buy from her. Silivia is thankful for your support!

Silvia is the second from the left. She is seated, dressed in jeans and a cream colored top.

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.
