G / S Comerciantes De Mariscos Group
In this Group: Noemi, Diana Raquel, Angelita Dora
The Comerciantes de Mariscos solidarity group is made up of three people, Noemí, Diana, and Angelita, single mothers with five children in their care. They're from Managua, located in the center of the country. They're responsible and hardworking people with a desire for personal self-improvement. Unfortunately they weren't able to study because they lacked the economic resources. And they strive every day to give their children the best.

Diana's the coordinator of the group so she's responsible for making timely payments for the group. Thanks to her effort and her desire to get ahead she has a business selling shellfish located in some of the town markets. She devotes about 10 hours a day to her business.

The goal of the loan is to invest in working capital and stock her business so she can earn better income in the near future.

The Comerciantes de Mariscos solidarity group is grateful for the help that Kiva lenders give to low-income people and poor countries such as Nicaragua so they have a source of decent work.

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.
