Duo La Providencia Group
In this Group: Blanca Gricelda , Irma Yolanda

This group is made up of two sisters. Irma learned to weave güipil when she was little, as well as how to raise animals. When she married she continued in the trade and little by little was able to support her 3 children. She is asking for this loan to buy the raw materials to make weavings. Then there is Blanca, who also has woven güipil for 20 years. She now has a small store located in her house where she has sold items of daily consumption for 3 years. This has helped her a lot because she can attend to her business as well as her children and husband and be satisfied with what she is contributing to her family.

Both of them, as mothers and wives, want the best for their families and that is what has motivated them to keep working everyday for a prosperous future for their small children whom they see grow day to day.

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.
