The majority of group members are married with large families. Currently, they live in rented rooms, that with the passage of time have become crowded due to the growth of their families. They have the dream of being able to buy homes of their own to offer greater comfort to their children, and for this they work from very early in the morning in their different businesses.

The activities of the Pacajes group are diverse: some of the members sew, others create handmade sweaters and blankets, and some also make artistic tapestries and tinplate artwork.

The group members seek this loan with the goal of increasing their sales. For this, they will need to buy raw materials and complete high quality projects with which they will increase their income - the main objective of which is to improve the quality of life for their families.

Additional Information

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.
