Los Eucaliptos Duo

Elida is married and has five children, all of whom attend school near her community. She sells everyday consumer products and, thanks to the first loan, now she also sells used clothing in her home.

She's doing well because with her profits from her business she can help her husband with the household expenses. They're a large family and these days it costs a lot to meet the family's needs.

She's requesting the loan to continue investing in her business by buying groceries and a small amount of clothing merchandise to sell.

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.
