In the Panamerican focal center we find the "San Pablo" association, which to date has nine active members who work together with Kiva partner Pro-Mujer for more than seven years. The members' businesses are diverse, for example, some of the women run a small brand-name (Reblon) perfume distribution; Sonia is owner of a convenience store, and Luz is as well; other members sell electric appliances on credit to institutions and certain people. The majority of the members are married with children — Lidia and Verónica are the only single members in the group — and all are untied by the goal to work for their families' economic stabilities. All of the women want to increase their sales, which in turn means they need to buy a larger quantity of supplies, so they can generate more earnings to allow them to improve the quality of life for their families.

Additional Information

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.
