Jehova Jihere Group
In this Group: Zonia Beatriz, Antonia Patricia, Silvia Esther, Blanca Iris, Orfa Patricia, Sandra Elizabeth, Fermina , Eulalia , America Isabel , Santa Ofelia
The Jehova Jhire communal bank was created with help from a woman who had already been a member of a FAPE communal bank. It was formed two months ago with ten members.

Commerce is the main activity of the members among which are: shoe sales, egg sales, clothing sales, tamales sales, tortilla sales, firewood sales, beauty product sales, glazier services, fruit and vegetables sales.

Blanca Z. is group president. She is 40 years old, married and has 6 children five of whom go a local school. She lives in a large marginal urban area which has been classified as a red zone. Fortunately, though, thanks to God, she’s never been harassed and has managed to have a successful business. Her greatest wish is that her children graduate from university and become upstanding citizens.

For 19 years she has been in the firewood sales business. She is asking for funds to buy more firewood because most of the people in her community make their own tortillas and they cook them with firewood.

Her dream is that her business grows and she can expand it throughout the community where she lives.

About FAPE

FAPE, the Foundation for the Assistance of Small Businesses, is a nonprofit, socially-minded institution that provides loans to micro-entrepreneurs across Guatemala.

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.
