Los Eloteros Group
Three years ago Yaneth began selling used clothes based on requests she received from her neighbors. The challenges she faces are seasonal drops in sales. She is requesting this loan to invest in more clothes of the current fashions so that she can attract more customers and increase her sales.
She works from 7:00 AM until 4:00 PM. Her biggest challenge is that when she provides her customers with a line of credit, they don't always pay her back on time. Her goals are to be successful and to have her own store where she can sell different styles of clothing so she can make a bigger income. She wants to help her husband with the household expenses and those of her children.
This is the first time Yaneth has asked for a loan from FAMA and she plans to repay her debt punctually.

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.
