Cuna De Belen Group
In this Group: Cirilo, Aurelia, Celia, Josefina, Paulina, Feliza, Gilberta
The group “Cuna de Belen” is located in a beautiful community that is known for its grand traditions. The members of this group say that Candelaria, which occurs on the 2nd of February, is the best community celebration. It is a Catholic celebration in which the majority of people gather to honor the Virgen.
Feliza is the group representative. She is 46 years old. She has been married for 27 years to Miguel who works as a laborer. Together they have six children, but only two are still dependent. Feliza has been raising pigs for 27 years. She says, “I started raising pigs when my husband wasn't working and all of our children were in school. We had many expenses so I wanted to help my husband with the household expenses.”
Feliza is requesting a loan to buy feed for her piglets so they can continue their healthy growth. She says that she buys piglets when they are very small and raises and fattens them to sell. Her neighbors generally check in with her to find out when her pigs are developed enough to sell. Her one challenge is paying for feed for her piglets.
Her dream is for her children to have a better future and to become professionals. Like Feliza, the other members have dreams and will invest their loans in their businesses. Cirilo will invest in his grocery store, Aurelia, Josefina and Paulina will invest in chickens, Celia in cattle and Gilberta in pigs.

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.
