In this Group: Mario Alfonso , Pedro Maximiliano, Antonio
Mario (pictured in the center) is the representative of the Aguatacales Group. He is 42 years old, who lives together with his children (three sons and three daughters) in Caserio Maya Cakchiquel, in the canton of El Tablón, in the province of Sololá.

He is a kind and hardworking man who works as a farmer growing corn. He has been working as a farmer for 20 years, an occupation that is very important to him as it is how he ensures he can provide for his family. He sells his surplus harvest in the local markets, which generates additional income for covering household expenses such as clothing and education for his children. The other members of the group will use this loan to purchase organic fertilizer to maintain their corn crop and thus the quality and yield of their harvest.

Mario's goal is to remodel his home and provide for the education of his children.

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.
