This group is called the Princesses of Cuautlapan because that is the name of the community from which the members come plus there they treat their women like princesses. It is located in the Cuautlapan community, in the municipality of Ixtaczoquitlan in the state of VeraC., Mexico. The group is maD. up of 13 members. Alejandra O. M. is the president of the group - she sells snacks (peanuts, seeds, pork scratchings) and she has asked for 3,000 pesos with which to buy ingredients to prepare her snacks. Also in the group is Mrs. Rosa Maria C. F. who is 34 years old and only went to primary school. She makes and sells tamales, which she sells in the streets from a cart. On Wednesdays she sells them together with her husband who works in the same business. They have been selling tamales for 21 years and she is asking for a loan in order to buy plantain leaves in which to wrap the tamales. She is married and has 4 children of 19, 17, 15 and 12 years of age. She began selling tamales from her house but after the birth of her children she needed to go out with her husband into the street to sell them and increase their sales. This business is the family's only source of income; thanks to the business they have been able to build a house on land they inherited and educate their children, all of whom are currently studying and also helping to sell tamales. As well as buying a small second-hand van to use to transport the tricycle from which they sell their tamales to other communities and increase their sales, she dreams of one day buying some land and having rooms for rent and securing a future for when she can no longer work, and perhaps buying a new car. All of this will help to grow her business thanks to loans.

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.
