Illimani - 27 Group
In this Group: Cecilia, Norma Ivone, Delia Luz, Ana, Ernestina, Benita, Jesus Santos, Raquel
Norma is a 35-year old woman, single, and the mother of two children. She spends her time raising her two children who attend primary school where they are good students. They play football in any spare moment they have. Norma encourages her children in this activity and buys whatever they need: gloves, balls, and shirts with the names of their favorite teams. "My children are good students, and responsible too. For that reason I work hard so they lack for nothing and one day will fulfill their dreams," she says.

Norma sells fast food such as hot dogs, hamburgers, and fried chicken in the streets. She has a small cart with a propane gas stove. During the day she is busy preparing the food so that it is ready for the evening. Before the sun goes down she opens up her business so her customers know that she is about to start selling her wares. She remains there until she has sold all the food she prepared. Then she has to clean the stove and take it to a nearby garage for safe storage. She works every day of the week.

Norma thinks the time is ripe to expand her business and improve the quality of life of her children. Her plan is to rent a space for a fast food restaurant. This is why she is seeking a loan.

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.
