'Betty Boop' is a solidarity group and this is their first cycle. The group consists of seven close-knit members, all of whom are working in sales in order to provide for their families. Their meetings are held in the San Miguel district in the city of General Escobedo. They chose the name for their group because they like the character, and also feel they can identify with it.

María Dolores is a young, intelligent group member with a fighting spirit. She is 23 years old, has a 3-year-old son and lives with her partner in General Escobedo, Nuevo León. María Dolores has been selling jewelry and shoes from her house for around 2 years. She is asking for this loan so that she can stock more merchandise, increase sales, help her partner, and be able to give her son a better education as he is her inspiration to keep going.

One of María Dolores' goals is to continue her business selling jewelry and shoes, and gain more customers. In the future she hopes to set up a grocery business at home.

Esta formado por 7 integrantes muy unidas, las cuales se dedican al comercio, para así sacar adelante a sus familias, y sus reuniones se ubican en la colonia San Miguel en la ciudad General Escobedo.

María Dolores se dedica a la venta de joyería y zapatos en su casa desde hace aproximádamente 2 años.

Una de las metas de María Dolores es seguir con su negocio de venta de joyería y zapatos y hacerse de mas clientela, y en un futuro poner un negocio de abarrotes en su casa.

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.
