Marisol explains nostalgically that her ex-husband helped her become a cook. He was the barman in a restaurant and he always noticed that the food they served wasn’t good and the people weren’t happy. He always said his wife cooked better and that’s how she got them to hire her for an event. That’s how it took off and she became known. She started in this business with her good seasoning and the help of her mother. She made her own personal cards offering her services to every person she knew. She advertised herself and the results were good because they began calling her from all over. They hire her for birthday parties, anniversaries, events, etc.
In the summer she also helps herself because she gets contracts from families for their summer houses. She makes a good profit for this. She also sells Herbalife products. All these jobs help her cover her needs and those of her 2 children. She is separated and she supports them herself. Marisol likes cooking a lot and she feels happy. She is already thinking of opening her own restaurant in the future where she could wait on all her customers. What she is doing now is temporary. She wants something safe and stable. She knows that she’ll have her children’s and EDAPROSPO’s help con this project. She’s thankful for the organization because she has achieved a lot of things. She’ll use her current loan to buy Herbalife products because she has many products to deliver to her customers.

Marisol cuenta con algo de nostalgia que fue su ex esposo la que la impulso a dedicarse a la cocina. El era barman en un restaurante y siempre observo que la comida que servían no era buena y la gente no estaba contenta el siempre decía que su esposa cocinaba mejor, es así que consigue que la contraten para un evento y ese fue el despegue para que se haga conocida, con su buena sazón y con la ayuda de su mama es que empieza en este negocio. Ella misma preparo sus tarjetas personales ofreciendo sus servicios a toda persona que conocía, de esta manera ella misma se publicito y los resultados fueron buenos por que la empezaron a llamar de todos lados. La contratan para fiestas de cumpleaños, aniversarios, eventos etc.
En verano también se ayuda por que recibe contratos de familias para sus casas de playa, por lo cual obtiene buenas ganancias, también vende productos herbalife todas estos trabajos la ayudan a cubrir sus necesidades y la de sus 2 hijos por que ella es separada y los mantiene sola, a Marisol le agrada mucho la cocina y se siente feliz. Para mas adelante ya esta pensando en poner su propio restaurante donde pueda atender a todos sus clientes, lo que ahora hace es eventual y ella quiere algo seguro y estable, sabe que en este proyecto recibirá la ayuda de sus hijos y de EDAPROSPO la entidad con la que se siente agradecida por que ha logrado muchas cosas, su actual préstamo lo va a usar comprando productos de herbalife por que tiene muchos productos por entregar a sus clientas.

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.
