View original language description ↓
Martha H. G. is 27 years old and has three children. Since she was very young she learned the art of making brooms and shopping bags called "Morraletas". Now that she has started her own family she opened a store out of her home selling plastics of different colors. She sells them by the kilo as raw material that is used to make brooms and shopping bags. In this way she helps her husband with household expenses. She gets her materials in the town of Tuxtla Gutierrez two hours away from her home, and with the loan she will be able to purchase more plastics to offer her customers. Martha belongs to the "Marqueza 2" group along with Maria Luisa P. H., who sells fruits and vegetables, and Carmen C. P., who sells chicken.

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.
