Violeta 2 Group
In this Group: Mayelin, Flora, Amerfi, Yane, Monica
Mayelin is the coordinator of her group Violeta 2 (Violet). Her group is located in Los Alcarrizos, a dusty industrial area north of the capital where free trade zones are common. She makes her home in a simple structure with her long-term partner. She says that her most difficult challenge is to become a mother; she is only 24 years old. In the meantime she plans to continue enjoying studying.

Mayelin is excited to be taking her fourth loan with Esperanza, after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She has had her business for a year, starting with her first Esperanza loan, with her sister teaching her to do business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business by buying kids' and women's clothing and underwear. She will use the profits to invest in her business and finish her studies. She wishes to run her own clothing store and become a professional.

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.
