Alcatraz De San Marcos Group
In this Group: Herminia, Leoncia, Felicitas, Martina, Liova, Gaudencia, Angela
This loan group is called "Alcatraz de San Marcos" after a very pretty flower that everyone likes and the community of San Marcos, where the seven group members live. The group members work in the following trades: Hermina, Leoncia, Felicitas, Martina, Liova, Guadencia, and Angela are all potters and make casseroles, jars, pots, crockery, etc
Liova has been a member of the group for three loan cycles, and is a widow and has two children - one boy who has finished his studies, and one girl who goes to secondary school. She wants to grow her business for the future so she can export her merchandise to other countries. This would let her and her children move forward in life and would enable the girl who is in school to go to university.
With this loan she wants to buy clay in bulk, loads of fire wood, and paint in order to make casseroles, pots, jars, china plates, flowerpots, etc and to sell them in Mexico City and around Puebla and Morelos and so to earn more income to support her children.
Liova tells us that she feels very comfortable with the group and that she is a very reliable repayer and punctual, and she comments that she is very grateful to the Foundation and Kiva for offering her a loan and she hopes that she will show them good results from her work and that the group can continue working with them in the future.

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.
