This group is called “Palmix” and it has 13 members, all hardworking, humble women who are good mothers because they work to provide the best for their children. They decided to name it Palmix because the place where the meet is full of flowering palm trees.

One of the group members is Maribel Elvia who sells second-hand clothes and footwear. Maribel tells us that she’s been in this business for four years and what she most enjoys is selling footwear because that’s what produces the highest profits and her customers enjoy the treatment she gives them and the quality of her merchandise.

Maribel is happily married to Alfonso Joel with whom she has two children: Jenifer and Juan Luis who help her with the business since they take care of customers when the visit her house to buy clothes. One of Maribel’s dreams is to enlarge the business and have a locale where she can display her merchandise. She asked for the loan to buy clothes and footwear to sell. Maribel says that she’d very much like to sell Mary Kay perfumes.

Julia- sells chicken.

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.
