Liz belongs to the Los Angeles group, which is located in the María Isabel colony in the Valle de Calco municipality, a semi urban area in the state of Mexico. Liz sells paper products with her tricycle in front of a school every morning before the children enter the school. To do so, she has to go from her house to the school very early pushing her tricycle.

She is asking for a loan to buy more paper products (notebooks, pencils, colors) because the new school cycle is approaching. She needs to stock up for when the children need new supplies. This is an opportunity for Liz to generate more sales and get income that will help her husband with the school expenses for her three daughters. Her husband’s work is seasonal, and it covers basic needs. By both working they can give their daughters greater academic preparation, like they had.

The group consists of 12 members (from left to right):

Maricarmen Domínguez Uniform Sales

Liz pertenece al grupo LOS ANGELES que esta ubicado en la colonia María Isabel en el Municipio de Valle de Chalco una zona semi urbana. Del Estado de México, Liz vende productos de papelería frente a una escuela con su triciclo todas las mañanas antes de que los niños entren a la escuela, por lo cual ella tiene que trasladarse desde su casa a la escuela muy temprano empujando su triciclo. Ella esta pidiendo este préstamo para comprar más productos de papelería (cuadernos, lápices, colores) ya que se acerca el nuevo ciclo escolar y necesita surtirse por que es, cuando todos los niños necesitan nuevos útiles, y para Liz una oportunidad de generar mas ventas y obtener ingresos que le ayudaría con los gastos de escuela para sus 3 hijas y apoyar a su esposo en estos gastos, por que el cuenta con un trabajo que es de temporada, cubriendo necesidades básicas y con el trabajo de ambos darle a sus hijas una preparación académica mayor, a la que ellos tuvieron.

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.
