Duo Solidario El Mañana Group
In this Group: Telma , Guadalupe
Sra. Telma is 24 years old, married, and has a daughter. She is the representative for the group “El Mañana” (The Morning). Telma has a business selling tortillas three times a day. She has been in business for three years and started out selling a small amount each day worth 50 GTQ. Now she earns 200 GTQ. Telma wants to buy an industrial griddle so that she can sell a little more. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy corn for making tortillas as well as an industrial griddle. Her younger sister works with her, so does not have to cope with all of the work by herself.

Doña Guadalupe also has a tortilla business. Her household includes four dependent children, three of whom are in school. She lives with her husband, who helps with the household expenses. Guadalupe started her tortilla business four years ago with the intention of helping her husband with the household expenses. Her loan will be used to buy corn in bulk so that she can get an affordable price. She will also buy chickens to raise, thereby helping her children to get ahead so that they can become professionals.

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.
