Los Angeles Group
In this Group: María Reyes, María Clementina, Rosa María , María Lina , Rubicela, Antonina
The loan group from the town of Tapotzingo called "Los Angeles" is maD. up of six women: María Reyes, María Clementina, Rosa María, María Lina, RubiceL. and Antonina. They all participate in different activities such as producing clothes, selling perfume, refurbishing household products, selling chickens, selling soft drinks and running a small grocery store (in that order). They decided to name the group "Los Angeles" in honor of their children, who are angels and who they work to benefit.

Doña Reyes, as she is known in the community, is a single mother. She has a daughter who studies in elementary school. Doña Reyes works as a seamstress, mainly sewing uniforms for nearby schools. She makes pants, shirts, blouses, skirts and shorts. Her customers are her neighbors in the community and in nearby communities like Guaytalpa, Mazateupa and El Santuario. She decided to start this business because it caught her attention 10 years ago and she took many courses in sewing. She wants her daughter to do well, pursue a well-paying job and career. She also wants to expand her house.

This group is very close and since they have known each other since they were little, they know that working together they can reach their goals. All of them are grateful that Kiva supports them through the Foundation because they work very hard and what they need is monetary resources.

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.
