Margarita is 31 years old and married. She went as far as third year of primary school and has four children, two of whom go to school. She makes baskets. She started this business having been taught it by her parents, and so far has 10 years of experience.

She decided to organize a group to apply for a loan, which she will use to purchase materials for making baskets.

In the future she wishes to have a large amount of working capital so that she can make more baskets and have a shop in the center of the town. The other members of the group are vendors.

In the group photo, one member is missing, as this lady was not able to attend the meeting where they took the photo.

About Asociación ASDIR

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.
