Gloria Q. H. is 42 years old and sells chickens from her stand at the local market, but she also sells as a wholesaler from her home. She has been raising and selling chickens for eight years. Gloria also worked with another credit organization, but when she needed more money, her request was denied. For this reason, she resorted to a solidarity group loan so that she could buy chickens to sell.

Alma Guadalupe P. U. raises and sells chickens, but she also sells basic food products. She needs a loan to buy chickens to raise as well as feed for these birds. She hopes that FAPE and Kiva can assist her with this loan.

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.
