Among the great many activities of this group we have Martha, who dedicates herself to needlework, the same as Irlanda; Asencia has a stall selling sweets and cookies; Regina sells beef; Irma prepares delicious juices based on quinoa, and Juan sells DVDs on the streets. We should mention Lidia who sells artisan pictures in the atrium of the San Francisco Church in the city of La Paz. Lamentably, she still lacks basic services in her home and needs greater income in order to be able to solve this problem for the wellbeing of her children.

In this new loan cycle the Suma Sartawi association affirms that the loan is needed to resupply their businesses with capital, acquiring a variety of products (pictures, sweets, milk, meat, cloth, and other items).

Additional Information

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.
