This group is called “Blanca Ometepec.” The members of the group decided on this name because that’s the name of the person who formed the group and that’s why they decided to give it that name.

This story is about Blanca who is one of the group members. She’s 30 years old, married to Armando and they have three children: Carlos, Luis Ángel and Erika, who are attending first and fourth grade and the youngest is in third year of preschool. She has been making clothes for over ten years.

Blanca decided on this business because she says she wanted to find a way to improve her quality of life and that of her family and also to offer her little children a good education. She will use the loan to buy t-shirts, shirts, sport uniforms and also supplies like thread, fabric, scissors, zippers and buttons at wholesale to continue making her articles of clothing.

Her dream is to expand her locale a bit more to have it better stocked with articles of clothing and continue with her sales this way because this way she will obtain more and better income to continue supporting her children with their studies so that they can have good professional careers.

She is very grateful to Fundación Realidad and to Kiva for the support of the loan they granted because thanks to it her business will start to improve much. Her life and her family’s life will also change.

Blanca-clothing store

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.
