Sra. Juana C. I. is 37 years old and originally from Paraje Chocruz, which is part of the neighborhood of Santa Ana Momostenango. She currently makes belts that are used in the production of women’s skirts, which allows her to earn income to support her family. For this reason, she is requesting a loan from Asociación ASDIR so that she can increase her capital.

Juana came up with the idea to form a group of women who could help each other and were like-minded in their desire to succeed. The group consists of ten people who are engaged in businesses such as selling fabric for blouses, juices, and other products.

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.
