Vhin Flores Group
In this Group: Angelina Alberta , Maricela , Eduardo , Yazmin , Petra , Viviana , Floriberta Lucila, Alfonsa Rosa , Elba Leticia , Monica Yudith
This group is called Vhin Flores, in honor of a local teacher who was a social activist that achieved significant development within the community. Among his notable contributions are a middle school, and the Escuela Normal de Amilcingo [Amilcingo School of Pedagogy], located in Amilcingo, Temoac in the State of Morelos, Mexico. The group has 10 members and this is the fourth loan they have requested with CrediComun.

Petra N. C. is the group's treasurer. She's forty-two, with a middle school education. She has two children (a girl, 9, and a boy, 14), and has earned her living making traditional sweets since she was seventeen. She's been in business for twenty-five years, and now it's a family tradition.

She is requesting a loan so she can buy the ingredients she needs, such as peanuts, tamarind, candied sweet potato, and amaranth, which is still used in food for astronauts because of its nutritive properties. Her dream is to use the profits from her candy business to buy a window for her house, as well as an iron gate since she doesn't have one yet.

Angelina Alberta O. E., Sells shoes
Maricela Harnandez N., Makes handicrafts
Eduardo Quebedo G., Sells tortillas
Yazmin R. O., Sells clothing and fabrics

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.
