Solidario Palmeras:

This group is made up of three members who make a living in different activities.

Marlyn is 32 years old and has four children. She started her business two years ago. She sells jackets and bed covers. She started her business with the help of a friend who helped her both economically and morally. So, little by little she set up her business. She is now requesting a loan to buy bed covers and jackets, as she sees that she needs to invest in order to extend her business. She appreciates the help offered by Fape and Kiva.

Norma Elizabeth also makes a living selling varied clothing such as blouses, shirts, dresses, etc.

Else makes a living selling bread and cosmetics.

About FAPE

FAPE, the Foundation for the Assistance of Small Businesses, is a nonprofit, socially-minded institution that provides loans to micro-entrepreneurs across Guatemala.

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.
