In this Group: Victoria , Lourdes , Magdalena , Norma , Virginia , Maria Elena
The group "Las Lupitas" is made up of 6 very happy and hardworking women who work each day in their own businesses to get ahead with their families, and provide a better quality of life and education to their children.

Maria Elena is one of the members of this group. She is 30 years old, and has a high school education. She is married to Luis, who is a truck driver. They have a son, named Luis Angel, who is two years old. Maria Elena tells us that she started a business selling clothing 3 years ago in order to support her son, because it seemed to her that the economic situation continues to deteriorate. This way she can help her husband with the household expenses, and with both of them working hard they can get ahead.

Maria Elena tells us that she makes her clothing sales by going door-to-door. She displays her clothing to her friends and neighbors in her community, and if they like her products they buy them. In addition, she says that occasionally her customers will make orders, and she will go out to buy clothing and deliver the orders to them. Also, she comments that she is very content, because she is already very well known in the community for her business selling clothing.

Maria Elena needs this loan to buy blouses, shirts, socks, pants, skirts, T-shirts, dresses, shorts and lycra leggings to later offer for sale.

She hopes that with this investment her business will prosper, because in the future she wants to rent a store and provide her children with a better quality of life.

The other members of the group are:

Victoria - food sales
Lourdes - cosmetics sales
Magdalena - clothing sales
Norma - food sales

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.
