Mujeres Luchadoras De San Jose El Idolo Group
In this Group: Yesenia Magali, Melchora, Juana, Catalina, Maria Leona, Marta Luisa
This group of people lives in the San Francisco neighborhood of San José El Ídolo Suchitepéquez. They are requesting funds from Asociación ASDIR because they are merchants in the downtown area of said municipality and adjoining areas. They sell: clothing, fruit, tortillas, spare parts; some raise pigs. They sell their products moving from place to place and need funds to be able to continue their work.

It has been noted that they wish to improve because they currently live in a very low socio-economic stratum and need capital through with they can increase sales and reach important goals such as improving the education and health of their children thereby contributing since they currently have only their husbands’ earnings and these are insufficient to meet household needs.

For this reason they need the loan in order to improve their living conditions.

There are two persons that appear in the photo who did not qualify for a loan according to Asociación ASDIR’s qualifying criteria.

tortillas, Refacciones y crianza de marranos son de tipo ambulante y que se vieron en la necesidad de solicitar
un crédito para poder mantener la venta así darle continuidad. Se ha notado en ellas la buena intención
de superación ya que actualmente viven en un nivel económico muy bajo y necesitan el capital porque a través
de ello puedan incrementar la venta y llegar a logros muy importantes como el mejorar la Educación y
la Salud de sus hijos, y así poder contribuir, ya que actualmente solo cuentan con los ingresos de sus esposos
el cual no es suficiente para los gastos del hogar, por esa razón necesitan el crédito y así mejorar
su condición de vida. hay dos personas insertas en la fotografia que solicitaron su credito pero la cual no fueron calificadas segun el criterio de la Asociacion Asdir.

About Asociación ASDIR

ASDIR (Asociación de Desarrollo Integral Rural - Association for the Development of Rural Communities) is a community-based organization that works to promote development in the villages and communities where it serves. It was founded in 1999 in the village of Nimasac, Totonicapán Department, by a handful of local men and women to support community projects and group loans. Today ASDIR has 5 offices across 3 departments (Totonicapán, Sololá and Suchitepéquez) serving more than 6,000 clients, most of them in rural communities.

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.
