Montserrat Group
In this Group: Esperanza, Trinidad, Yolanda, Luvia, Natividad
The Montserrat Group is aptly named because the day of their loan request occurred during the celebration for Our Lady of Montserrat. The group consists of five women and is led by Doña Esperanza M. H., who has a daughter. Doña Esperanza sells brand name shoes from “B Hermanos” (a Mexican shoe store chain) for women, men, and children. She fulfills her orders in the city of Villahermosa.


Doña Trinidad has six children and operates a blacksmith shop with her husband. The business is located beside their house. Doña Trina, as she is known in the community, will buy more materials such as angle iron, tubing, scrap iron, and metal sheeting so that she can complete orders she receives for doors, window frames, gates, and privacy shields. She and her husband dream of having a blacksmith shop that is complete so that they can better satisfy the needs of their customers. They also hope that their children will be able to study for their university degree.


Doña Yolanda has two children and manages a grocery store in her home. Doña Luvia and Doña Natividad have two daughters each. Both women sell chickens that they raise at home.


All of these women work extremely hard in their different businesses. They are a close-knit group and have known each other for many years. The group would like to thank the Foundation and Kiva for their support and consideration which will allow them to continue their small businesses.

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.
