Las Atrevidas Group
In this Group: Maria Isabel , Domitila , Carmelo , Francisca , Rafaela , Eliana , Juana , Silvia , Maria Inez , Jose
The group 'Las Atrevidas' [The Bold Ones] is made up of 10 people, all of which are involved in different economic activities. The group is located in a region where there are two principal economic activities, one of them is planting sugar cane and the second is collecting resin from rubber trees.

Domitila is one of the group members. She is 56 years old and studied up until high school. She is single and has a son who is 19 years old that also studied in high school. She told us that a little over six years ago she started selling juice drinks out of her home to earn a little extra money to help her family get ahead. Little by little with time her business was growing and she began to also sell groceries. She conducts sales from her home, where she has shelves and tables set up to display her products. She also told us that she likes to have her business well stocked so that her customers always find what they are looking for and come back to her store to spend their money. Domitila needs this loan to invest in the purchase of rice, beans, oil, juice drinks, crackers, candies, soap, toilet paper, canned products, eggs, toothpaste, salt and sugar to restock her store. She hopes that with this investment her business will prosper and will get more customers so that her profits will increase. She would like to be able to build a small place [for her store] and continue the construction of her home.

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.
