This group is called the "Coquetas Lindas" (Beautiful Coquettes). They are located in an area called the Community, in Jilotepec, in the state of Mexico in Mexico. The group is made up of 11 members.


Melquiades Hernández Hernández is a member of the group. She is 50 years old, has three years of schooling, is a merchant, and has a total of 7 children (2 girls and 5 boys). Her business is raising sheep which she has been doing for 30 years. She started the business shortly after she was married with just one young sheep, which grew, and late she bought an ewe, and from there she grew the business. She picked a pair to continue breeding and the rest she sold with a horse and a burro that she had to buy dishes and crockery for her home. With the pair of lambs that kept she kept breeding more sheep and now she is asking for a loan to buy food and fodder to feed them. This will also allow her to buy more sheep and expand her business to earn more money and continue supporting her husband's efforts to construct a house for them to provide a better life for their family. She considers the loan a great opportunity.
Isabel L. D. is the treasurer of the group. She is 28 years old, went to school until the third year of high school, is married, and has two children (a girl and a boy). She has been raising pigs for the last 5 years. She is asking for a loan to buy food to fatten up the pigs that she has so that once they are ready to be sold she can buy more and little by little expand her business and income. This way she has the possibility to help out with the household expenses and provide her children a healthier diet. She hopes that she will one day have more pigs and a greater income so that one day she will be able to finish her kitchen and a bedroom for her children

Empezó con el negocio poco tiempo después de casada con 1 borreguito que tenía, lo creció y después le compró una borrega de pareja, con ambos empezó a sacar crías y creció el negocio, seleccionó un par para continuar con la reproducción de la especie y todos los demás los vendió junto con un caballo y un burro que tenia para ponerle loza a los cuartos de su vivienda. Con el par de borregos que conservó nuevamente se fue haciendo de más borregos y ahora solicita el préstamo para comprar alimento y forrajes para alimentarlos, si le alcanza comprar otro borrego ya que ella quiere que su negocio crezca para obtener mayores ganancias y continuar apoyando a su esposo en la construcción de su casita pues para ellos es muy importante tener una mejor calidad de vida con su familia, considera que el crédito es una buena oportunidad.

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.
