Alicia and Helen Solidarity Group

Sra. Alicia is 52 years old and has been managing a store for 15 years. She is very pleased with this business that God has given her. Even though her business is located along one of the alleyways in the town where she lives, there are always people who come to her store to buy. She currently gets many requests for water and sodas, but she does not have sufficient stock in her store. Her customers ask for sodas in cans and disposable containers, both in the jumbo and normal sizes. Alicia is also lacking in sugar, rice, and a few other basic staples. She has started to sell medicines such as acetaminophen tablets, panadol, tabcin, and other remedies, but she has very little in stock.

Alicia does not have enough money, but needs to have the products in her store so that her customers will not go elsewhere. For this reason, she will use her new loan to buy everything that she is lacking.

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.
