View original language description ↓

The name of this association comes from the characteristics of the bee. The bee is extremely beneficial to the environment, but its best quality is it that it works without rest. This is why, the members tell us, they identify with the bee for its hard work and perseverence.



This association is made up of 19 hardworking members who work preparing and selling food, some from their own restaurants, some from a small stand, and some from the roadside. The loan will be used to boost their businesses, primarily the food stands, where they make the traditional dishes during carnaval.




El nombre de la Asociación Comunal Las Abejitas tiene su origen en las características de este insecto. La Abeja es un insecto sumamente beneficioso para la naturaleza, pero su mayor cualidad es el trabajo sin descanso. Tal como nos cuentan las socias, ellas se ven muy identificadas con este insecto por esa cualidad, el trabajo y la perseverancia.

Esta Asociación esta conformada por 19 socias muy trabajadoras que se dedican principalmente al comercio y en algunos casos la preparación de comida, algunas cuentan con su propio restaurante, y en ocasiones al carecer de un puesto de venta de comida, se dedican a la venta en plena vía pública.

Ellas precisan de capital para poder reactivar sus negocios, principalmente aquellos puestos de comida, que se alistan para aquellas entradas folklóricas que se llevan a cabo en la época de carnaval.

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.
