Divinas Group
In this Group: Francisca Elizabeth, Gloria , Isabel , Maria De Jesus , Martha Alicia, Sanjuana Guadalupe , Yzari
The Divinas (Divine) group consists of seven hard-working women who decided to call the group that because they consider themselves "divine." One of the members is Martha Alicia, a 34-year-old married mother of three children who are in school (ages 18, 11 and 6). She runs a grocery store out of her home. About six years ago she was working at a warehouse, and because she didn't have any help taking care of her kids she had to take on the least amount of work. The place where she worked was located on a big avenue, so her young daughter played near to where the cars were passing by. Martha Alicia was worried about her daughter's security, so she decided to leave her work and set up a store in her house. She dreams of buying a copy machine and establishing a stationery store, since there isn't this type of business where she lives. Later on, she wants to purchase a plotter (high-powered printer). With the loan she is requesting, she wants to stock her store with more merchandise to increase her sales and expand her shop.

El grupo Divinas está integrado por siete mujeres trabajadoras, que decidieron llamarse así porque ellas mismas se califican como “divinas”.
Una de las integrantes de llama Martha Alicia de 34 años, casada y con tres hijos que actualmente están estudiando (18, 11 y 6 años), tiene una tienda de abarrotes en su casa. Hace unos 6 años aproximadamente ella trabajaba en un depósito, como no tenía quien le ayudara a cuidar a todos sus hijos se llevaba a la más pequeña al trabajo. El lugar donde laboraba estaba ubicado en una avenida grande por lo que la niña jugaba cerca de los carros que transitaban por ahí; Alicia se preocupaba por la seguridad de su hija por lo que decidió salirse de ahí y poner una tienda en su casa.
Martha sueña con comprar una copiadora y establecer una papelería, ya que por donde vive no hay este tipo de establecimientos, más delante comprar un plotter. Con el crédito quiere surtir más mercancía para incrementar las ventas y expandir la tienda.

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.
