According to the customs and beliefs of our people, there is great respect for and devotion to the "Tata Santiago" (Father Santiago) figure, a Catholic religious idol known for the miracles he performed at the request of his followers. For that reason, "Stars of Santiago" is the name that these eighteen women have chosen to christen their association. For four years they have worked within the organization, always responsibly and with great devotion to their patron saint, who blesses them and brings success to their various activities, such as making military clothing, creating miniature handicrafts, and business in general.

All of these women need money, mainly to purchase raw materials in the case of those who make clothing or crafts. Those engaged in business in general need to travel to other regions in search of merchandise with a strong supply that will be profitable for their interests.

Dentro de las costumbres y creencias de nuestra gente, existe gran respeto y devoción a la figura del “Tata Santiago” (Padre Santiago) ídolo religioso perteneciente al catolicismo, reconocido por los milagros realizados a petición de sus fieles. Por tal motivo, "Estrellas de Santiago" es el nombre que dieciocho mujeres han elegido para bautizar su asociación. Hace cuatro años que trabajan dentro de la Organización, siempre responsables y con mucha devoción a su patrono, quien bendice y da frutos a sus distintas actividades como ser la confección de ropa militar, artesanía en miniatura y comercio en general.
Todas estas mujeres precisan de dinero principalmente para la compra de materia prima en el caso de aquellas que confeccionan y las otras que realizan artesanías, y también es el caso de aquellas que se dedican al comercio en general, siendo que precisan trasladarse a otras regiones en busca de mercadería que tenga un flujo ágil y sea rentable para sus intereses.

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.
