"Los Tulipanes" [The Tulips] is a group made up of six happy and enterprising people. They are located in a city in the state of Veracruz. To arrive to the community, one takes a bus that drops you off on the highway, and one then has to walk around 25 minutes to arrive to the community.

Doña Maribel is one of the members of the group. She says that she started her business selling shoes by catalog five years ago. She sells her products door to door in her community, and she tells us that, thanks to God, she already has some customers, but she wants her business to prosper, so sometimes she goes to other communities to sell. Maribel mentions that she decided to start her business because she wants her children to have a better future and because she wants to help her husband with their children's and their home's expenses.

Maribel is 37. She studied until the sixth grade. She is married, and she has 4 children with Isaias. Two are boys, Isaias and Ismael, and two are girls, Yanely and Yaretzi.

She does her sales door to door, and in her free time, she goes out to offer her products through catalogs and to take orders, which she later stocks and delivers.

A credit from VisionFund will help her stock a variety of shoes.

Doña Maribel hopes that her business will keep growing. She also tells us that she is thankful to the foundation since with this loan, her business will prosper. With her profits, she hopes to continue with the construction of her home.

Lorenza, who sells clothing

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.
