This group is called Las Bordadoras de Tete [The Embroiderers of Tete]. It's members decided to name the group that because all of them are dedicated to their town and their craft. They make their living making and embroidering table cloths and huipiles [traditional indigenous blouses].

One of the members of the group is Estela who makes her living making and selling napkins, table cloths and huipiles. Estela tells us that she has made table cloths and napkins for ten years. Her favorite part of her business is weaving and drawing the flowers on to the cloth so that her table cloths are brighter and catch the eye of her customers.

She is happily married to Fidencio who is proud of her because she is an artisan and a hard worker. She makes her living each day with her creativity and her effort. She has three children. Edgar is eight years old, Jennifer is five years old, and Herminio is three years old. They help their mother by cutting the thread and passing her the wooden sticks to tighten the cloth.

Additional Information

Concurrent and Successive Loans

Our Field Partners often work with borrowers over a series of loans as the borrowers build credit, take out bigger loans, and expand their businesses. In order to make it easier for our Field Partners to post loans for borrowers who have been listed on Kiva before, we allow them to post successive and concurrent loans for their Kiva borrowers. This means that our Field Partners are able to post a borrower's second, third, etc., loan on Kiva without having to re-enter all of the borrower's information.

This borrower has been listed on Kiva before, so you'll see an updated loan description, as well as excerpts of the original descriptions from earlier loans. Most borrowers take out loans consecutively, meaning that they receive a second loan after having repaid the first. However, sometimes our Field Partners give out concurrent loans, allowing borrowers to take out one primary loan and a secondary "add-on" loan along with it. These "add-on" loans are typically smaller than the borrower's primary loan and serve a different purpose. Because Field Partners can now post loans as successive and concurrent loans, you will be able to track borrower progress over time and see the various ways a borrower is working with our Field Partners through funds from Kiva’s lenders.

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.
