Tlatoani Group
In this Group: Anatacio , Eutimio , Humberto Eduardo, Antolina Cornelia, Maria Elena
The group we are going to talk about is called “Tlatoani”, which means warriors, from a village called Tlayacapan. There are 5 members: Humberto Eduardo Martínez Rodríguez who sells tamales and maize drinks, Anastasio D. L. R. Santamaría who wants to start a business (magazines and newspapers), Antolina X. F., who sells catalog products (perfumes), Maria Elena O. M. (boiled corncobs and corn kernels), Eutimio Gómez T. (services, bricklaying).

Don Tacho, as the other group members call him, is who we are going to talk about. He is 63 years old, and is going to start a business selling magazines and newspapers. He tells us that the neighborhood where he lives doesn’t have a magazine stand. Currently, he lives with his wife, Isabel Santamaría Nopaltlali, and they have 4 children: Arturo D. L. R. Santamaría, 39 years old (married), Macario D. L. R. Santamaría, 29 years old (married), Armando D. L. R. Santamaría, 27 yeards old (married), Carlos D. L. R. Santamaría, 22 years old, the youngest, and also married.

Ignacio and his wife currently live alone, and he says he’d like me to mention that he wants to slowly grow his new business to have a more stable source of income. Currently, he works in the country and, since he is now older, it is more difficult every day for him to find work. This is why he needs this business, and to be able to grow it.

He is happy to have been given the opportunity to receive this credit, and he gives thanks ahead of time for the confidence placed in him. Thanks to Kiva and Fundación Realidad he can try to get ahead. His wife Isabel also thanks you with all her heart for your support.

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.
