In this Group: Maria Del Carmen, Rosa , Maria Guadalupe, Maria Rosalva , Maria Del Socorro
The name of the group is "Las Palmas" and it is made up of 5 women, each owning their own business. The name "Las Palmas" was chosen because the group is exclusively made up of women.

Maria del Carmen H. H. lives in the region of Benito J. of the Copainala municipality, in the state of Chiapas, Mexico. She is married with Mr. Rosemberg H. J., and they had three children together, all of whom are still in their care. They are: Maria Elizabeth, 22 years old, Olga Leticia, 15 years old and in grade 9, and the youngest is Carlos Antonio, 11 years old.

The loan requested will be invested in the business of buying and selling agricultural products such as bananas, product that sells very well in the nearby communities. this business is four years old and it has been very successful.

She started the business on her own, seeing that this product grows very well in her region and it is in high demand. she has her own plantation and so she is able to benefit from her harvests.

The profits she earns are invested in the purchase of more bananas to maintain a steady income. She will therefore be able to make the payments for the loan she requests.

Her wish is to be able to save money through her business so that she will be able to support her two children while they are in school, and to see them accomplish training for a career.

The individuals who make up the group are the following:

Maria Del Carmen S. S.: she will invest her loan in the purchase of agricultural products such as bananas.

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.
