In this Group: Trinidad , Martha Santos
The leader of the duo, "Creciendo con Esfuerzo," [Growing with Strength] is Martha Santos. She is 36 and has 5 children. She makes a living selling fruit (bananas wholesale and retail) in the market in the community and also at her home. She is requesting another credit. This will be her third credit. She has several orders in the community, but she doesn't have enough money to buy the bananas. This is why she is requesting the loan so she won't have to turn down any customers. Her dream is that her business keeps growing and to make the most of opportunities when they arise so people will keep coming to her and buying from her.

About FAPE

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.
