The Mariscal Sucre communal bank is made up of 11 members. Currently holding the position of president is Marta L., who is married and has 6 children. She has worked with Edaprospo for 3 years and eight months.
On the small plot of land where she lives, she began by raising and selling birds (hens and ducks). She invested her first loan in buying balanced feed. Later, she was able to open a small store with 5 cases of beer, 5 cases of soft drinks, and a small quantity of snacks and groceries. As time passed and her business grew, she acquired more products and also improved the infrastructure of her home.
Despite the fact that she suffers from diabetes, she continues to get ahead by increasing her efforts each day.
Her current loan will be invested in buying merchandise (groceries and snacks) and other items to stock her store.
Marta's desire for the future is to buy a car so that she can transport her merchandise from the point of sale to her home, and above all to support her 15-year-old daughter in her secondary and university studies.

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.
