In this Group: Dayan Marielos, Amarilis Elizabeth
The leader of the "Amarilis de Buena Vista Duo" is Amarilis Elizabeth, who sells a variety of cosmetics like shampoo, creams, lotions, lip colors, deodorants, and beauty treatments. She has several orders from her customers for complete beauty cream treatments, but does not have enough money to cover the purchase.

Amarilis sees the need to ask for a loan so that she won't disappoint her clients, and she can make good earnings. Her dream is to have a large store and to sell every cosmetic product, as there is no store like this in the neighborhood of her village. In this way, she will become the largest distributor of cosmetics. Amarilis has the unconditional support of her husband and wants to give the best to her child.

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.
