In this Group: Brenda Leticia, Irma Yolanda
The “Fusión” (Fusion) Duo is represented by Irma, 30. She’s single and has been working selling propane gas from home for the last two years. Irma had to start her own business because she couldn’t continue any longer employed at an assembly plant and getting another job was more difficult. Besides selling gas, she also provides tailoring services. People as well as her neighbors know her from the gas sales because she goes house to house in the zone. She hopes to be able to grow and to be able to have a house of her own; that’s her dream for the future.

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.
