This group is called “Las Abejitas” (The Little Bees) and consists of three married women who are engaged in their individual business activities. The woman who was interviewed is María del Carmen. She is married to Sr. Jaime and they have three children who are their responsibility.

María del Carmen is a homemaker and is requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of ingredients such as corn, oil, meat, raisins, banana leaves, ancho chiles, and other items. She has been working for six months and says that she has done very well with her income. María del Carmen was inspired to start this business so that she could help her husband with generating household income and providing their children with what they needed most so that they would lack nothing.

What she wants most is to see her small business improve day after day so that she can save some of her income to open a small shop where she can sell rice pudding and tamales.

The other ladies in the group are as follows:
• Idolina will invest in the purchase of materials for knitting and embroidering.

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.
