Mrs. María de Lourdes is 33 years old and lives in the Tres Marías community in the municipality of Chalco, in Mexico state. She is married and has 5 children, all of whom are school-aged. This is why she began working with paper products and making crafts (shapes made of foam, felt, and other materials). She began more than three years ago, since her husband works in a food warehouse as a loader and his income is not enough to cover the family's needs. She chose this line of work to avoid neglecting the education and care of her children--which is her main priority, and she desires to see her children studying. She needs more capital to invest in her business, in order to generate higher earnings and be able to buy a computer to help her print her own designs for her crafts. For this reason she is getting together with other people she knows to ask for a loan through Fundación Realidad A.C. as they are looking for a better quality of life.

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.
