A cordial welcome from your Peruvian brothers! Today I will tell you about the group "Las Manzanitas." It is a group made up of nine members who are just starting their first cycle. But they have known each other for a long time because their businesses are in the same area. They all have big dreams and the desire to continue growing personally as well as in their businesses.

Marleny is a member of the group and is a young single mother of 30 who lives with her two minor children, who are her only motivation to struggle every day. She works selling french fries with hot dogs, sandwiches, broasted chicken, etc., in a place located in the corner of a popular street in her town. She has had this business for more than three years. She only sells products during the afternoon because in the mornings she takes care of her small children.

She will invest part of her loan in improving her stall and the rest in purchasing needed ingredients to prepare and sell her products such as oil, disposable plates, toothpicks, special wrappers for her sandwiches, etc.

Her dream is to improve her little stall to offer a more comfortable place where her customers can enjoy their delicious dinners -- especially the french fries and hot dogs that are their favorites.

Marleny tells us: "Thanks to the Edaprospo team and the people of Kiva for their total support of entrepreneurial people." Marleny is the first from the left, dressed in a black sweater and red turtleneck.

Reciban un cordial saludo de sus hermanos peruanos; hoy les hablaré del grupo Las Manzanitas. Este es un grupo conformado por 9 socios que recién están iniciando su primer ciclo; pero entre ellos se conocen hace mucho tiempo porque sus negocios están dentro de la misma localidad. Todos ellos tienen grandes sueños y ganas de seguir creciendo tanto personalmente como en sus negocios.
Marleny, socia de este grupo es una joven madre soltera de 30 años que vive con sus 02 menores hijos, quienes son su único motivo para luchar cada día.
Ella se dedica a la venta de salchipapas, sándwiches, pollo broaster, etc. en un módulo ubicado en la esquina de una concurrida calle de su localidad; ella lleva con este negocio hace ya más tres años. Ella sólo vende sus productos por la tarde porque por las mañanas esta al cuidado de sus pequeños hijos.
Parte de su préstamo lo invertirá en acondicionar su módulo y la otra parte para comprar los insumos necesarios para preparar y vender sus productos, tales como: Aceite, platos descartables, mondadientes, envolturas especiales para sus sándwiches, etc.
Su sueño es poder acondicionar un local pequeño para ofrecer un lugar más cómodo donde sus clientes puedan saborear sus deliciosas meriendas; sobre todo las salchipapas que son las preferidas de sus comensales.
Marleny nos dice: ¡Gracias al equipo Edaprospo y a las personas de Kiva por el apoyo absoluto a las personas emprendedoras.

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.
