The communal bank "Dúo Orquídeas de Sumpango" includes Tomasa, who has a business preparing snacks which she sells in the central market of Sumpango, in Sacatepequez. She is a native of this area. She needs a loan to expand her business, because the competition is increasing, and so she needs to have a greater variety of snacks to sell. This is why she is requesting another loan with Kiva.

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.
