In this Group: Maria Emiliana , Irma Yolanda

Maria Emiliana is originally from the Xetzac village in the town of Tecpan. For several years, she has worked weaving skirts on looms and then selling the skirts. Thankfully business has grown enough since she started with one loom that she now has four looms. She has her looms at home; her husband works. With the support of her entire family, she continues to work and has deliveries of her skirts going to the surrounding towns, now that her product is well-known in the market and her clients know her.

Her dream is to expand the business to buy two more looms to earn better profits and improve the lives of her family and this way send their children to school for a better future. She is requesting this loan for the purchase of raw materials for the weaving of traditional textiles.

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.
