Doña Concha is one of the members of the Duo El Calvario group. She is a native of the town of San Juan Comalapa in the department of Chimaltenango. She is married and all of her children are now adults who help her produce her goods.

Doña Concha is 70 years old and she is a weaver who makes different products. She weaves guipiles (traditional blouses) and napkins. She makes her sales in the village because that is where she gets her orders for goods. Now, however, she needs a loan in order to expand her business because there is such a high demand. She will also use part of the loan to purchase the basic materials she uses to make her traditional woven goods.

About FAPE

FAPE, the Foundation for the Assistance of Small Businesses, is a nonprofit, socially-minded institution that provides loans to micro-entrepreneurs across Guatemala.

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.
