“Chocolate” is the name of a group of nine kind, cheerful and hardworking people. This group is located in a very well-known spot located near the Cerro de Oro dam. Along the shores of the lake there is a series of small thatch roof stands that operate as restaurants where the main dish is bream cooked in various ways.

Fabiola is one of the group members. She’s 36-years-old and only completed high school. She’s a single mother of a little boy whose name is Niels and who attends primary school. She’s been a clothes merchant for more than 15 years aiming at providing a better life for her son and to create her own source of employment. She sells from a stand she has in her community market. At the beginning she only sold clothes but since she had an establishment she started to stock it with other products like shoes, accessories and gifts.

What she likes best about her business is that she earns her own money and she can use profits to cover her son’s school, clothes and food costs. She requested this loan to invest in the purchase of a variety of shoes, shirts, blouses, t-shirts, pants, shorts, skirts, dresses and accessories. She hopes that her business will continue making progress with this investment so that she can increase profits to offer her son in future the opportunity to study a professional career. The group thanks VisionFund for the loan granted.

Maria - soft-drink sales
Zoila - candy sales
Cecilia - shoes sales
Daniel - carpentry services
Isabel - clothes and shoes sales
Leonor - stationery

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.
