This group is called “Las Campanitas de Loma” (Loma’s Little Bells); it has 9 members and is in Estado de México, a Mexican state.

Yolanda Jiménez C., 34, is the group treasurer. She finished high school and is a housewife and merchant; she has three children, two girls and one boy who are 17, 11 and 7 years of age respectively. She is a candy merchant; she started out two years ago with a small sales cart alongside a church; she was open for business from Saturday through Thursday, she used Fridays to stock up on merchandise.

She relates that based on loans and profits from her sales she was able to buy a car that she uses to go get her merchandise and transport it to various points of sale when there are events in town where many outlying communities participate and many booths are set up for all the people that gather.

She is asking for funds to buy more candy and snacks and, if possible, juices and beverages with the intention of expanding her business and continue participating in the events the town organizes because she expects to get more profits that will make it possible for her to build a proper candy store in the future thereby improving her quality of life.

Ella se dedica a la compra y venta de dulces que inició hace 2 años con un pequeño puesto ambulante a un costado de la iglesia en el cual trabaja de sábado a jueves y el día viernes lo emplea para ir a surtir su mercancía. Platica que a base de los créditos y con las ganancias que sus ventas le han generado se apoyó para comprar un automóvil que le sirve para trasladarse a comprar su mercancía y para transportarla a diferentes puntos de venta cuando hay eventos en el pueblo, en los que participan varias comunidades de los alrededores y se instalan muchos puestos para toda la gente que se reúne. Solicita el préstamo para invertir en la compra de más dulces y botanas, y de ser posible comprar también jugos y refrescos con la intención de acrecentar su negocio y continuar participando en las eventualidades que se organizan en su comunidad, pues ella espera obtener mas ganancias que con el paso del tiempo le permitan construir un local y tener su propia dulcería, mejorando también su calidad de vida.

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.
