Don Felipe S. Chún is married and completed elementary school through the second grade. He has five children, three are married and the other two are in school. One is attending basic (middle) school while the other is in elementary school. Don Felipe earns a living by selling daily consumer products. He has a store that he has managed for 25 years.

With enthusiasm and the help of some of his neighbors, Felipe was able to organize a solidarity group called “Chixacol”. The group consists of five members, two women and three men. Most of them engage in retail businesses, but one has a business in the service sector. The loan they are requesting will be used to expand their capital so that they can increase their sales volumes. For this reason, they visited the offices of Asociación ASDIR in Pologuá Momostenango to request a loan for buying merchandise.

About Asociación ASDIR

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.
