View original language description ↓
Hello, we are part of the group called Lluvias de Gracias, which translates roughly to Showers of Gratitude. We are located in the neighborhood known as Jasmin, which is in the municipality of Pariaso. We know each other well and we've been working together for a long time.

Our activities include:

Tomasa L. is a single mother with a daughter who attends school. Tomasa works selling everyday grocery items and sweets in various shops and markets.

Maura B. makes and sells snacks such as chicken tamales, enchiladas, etc, all of which she makes in her house. Fortunately, she generates enough income from her business to feed her family. Her husband died two years ago and now Maura is a single mother of two children. She has had to work very hard to take care of her family on her own.

Mirian M. is a nurse and works in a public health clinic, but her salary is not enough to cover her household costs. After work, she makes snacks and sweets which she sells around the neighborhood. She has two children who attend high school, and help her sell her snacks in the afternoons.

All of the women work together and with some financial support, they will be able to grow their businesses and more importantly, take care of their families and improve their quality of life. For this reason they ask for your support to help them reach their goals. Thank you.

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.
