In this Group: Ana Guadalupe, Clarissa , Martha Patricia , Nicolas
Ana Guadalupe, 35, only attended primary school; she’s a single mother of a little girl. She relates that since she didn't have much formal education her parents taught her when she was very young to work in order to get ahead. A little more than three years ago, though, with help from her family she opened a business selling refreshments that has grown in time. She’s added a variety of soft-drinks, candy and some groceries to it. She’s very happy with her business because it’s making progress.

In addition, on weekends she makes hot-dogs and hamburgers to sell in order to earn extra income. What she likes best about her activity is that she relates to people all day and always sells even if just a little. A VisionFund loan will help her buy a variety of soft-drinks, juices, snacks, candy, soap, rice, milk, beans, soup and canned goods to continue with her sales. She hopes with this investment that her business will continue progressing because she wants her daughter to have the opportunity of a professional career in future.

She belongs to a group called “San Judas” (St. Jude) that has four enterprising members. Each one of them has an economic activity and they decided on this group name because tradition holds that St. Jude Thaddeus is the patron saint of merchants. The San Judas group thanks VisionFund for the support it provides by means of these loans.

The other group members are:

Clarissa - snacks sales,
Martha - refreshment sales,
Nicolas - refreshment sales.

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.
