Duo San Francisco Group
In this Group: Sandra Leticia , Maria Olga
Sandra, 23, is part of the "Duo San Francisco" group. She has been farming for several years. She grows corn, beans, tomatoes and guicoyitos (type of squash).

She tells us that in this business you need a great deal of capital, as the crop needs special care so that pests or disease don't get in. If one of these two things affect the crop, the harvest can be lost. This is why she is applying for this loan to buy manure and fertilizers. She hopes that with this loan, they can help her again.

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.
