El Safiro Group
In this Group: Gladis Angélica, Guadalupe , Azucena Cristina , Alberta, Nely Yadira, Marcela Consepción
Gladis Angélica, Guadalupe, Azucena Cristina, Alberta y Marcela Consepción are the members of the Safiro communal bank who are going to buy flour, food coloring, oil, boxes, bags, and paper to make wafers.

Nely Yadira will buy tamarind pulp, candy, peanut brittle, and sesame seeds wholesale.

The members want to tell Kiva and Vision Fund (previously FRAC), “Thanks for the loans. They give us the support to get ahead in our businesses. May God keep you, and may you continue helping us with your loans to the people who need them the most.”

Marcela Consepción, age 39, is married and has one son. She makes different sizes of wafers to sell. She requested her loan to buy flour, oil, food coloring, bags, and edible gel (glue). This is to stock her business and to have materials on hand to keep on working. She started her business nine years ago due to necessity and the lack of financial resources.

Her business is important because that is where she gets her income. With that income she was able to pay for an operation on her son’s eyes and for his post-operative treatment. Marcela Consepción is very happy with the loan she is going to receive because she will stop worrying about stocking her business with raw materials.

Her dreams and hopes are to improve her business, to give employment to other people, and for her son to live better.

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.
