El Lirio Group
In this Group: Maria Irene, Mirian , Maria De Jesus
María Irene is married to Rodolfo, with whom she has three children that are under her care: Carlos Alejandro is 16 and in his second semester of high school, José Ignacio is 14 and in his third year of middle school, and Víctor de Jesús is 2 years old.

She is asking for this loan to purchase chickens and chicken feed that she will later sell in the same town. She has done this work for two years and a month, and she says it is going very well since she is earning an income from home. She started this business because she wanted to give the best to her children, so she had to do work that would earn an income. She and her husband work and they can have a better quality of life.

Her greatest wish is that with this loan and her business, she can have her savings to work and continue supporting her children so they can study and in time have a profession if that is what they want.

The group is made up of three women. The other two are Miriam, who bakes bread and is asking for a loan to purchase ingredients, and María de Jesús, who will purchase animal feed to raise pigs and later sell them.

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.
