* not pictured
They are Shalom (which means peace and well-being), a group made up of 11 members, all of whom are persons with dreams and desires to improve and succeed. They all live in the Valle de Chalco area of Colonia San Miguel, Mexico. This group was formed thanks to a mutual acquaintance who told them about FRAC, which they then decided to inquire about.

Guadalupe, a member of the group Shalom, is 40 years old. She just finished high school and is a single mother with two children, 20 years old and 2 years old. Guadalupe has sold school supplies in a stationery shop for the past 6 years as she desires a better future for her family. She likes sales; it helps her attend to people. For her, it is very rewarding to have her own business. Everyday she opens early and closes late. There are days when the sales are not good, but even then she tries to come out ahead.

With this loan she wants to buy more articles, such as notebooks, coloring instruments, geometric games, erasers, pencil sharpeners and pencils, to have more merchandise at the stationery shop. Her plans are to finish fixing her house, giving her children an education and to have her own place so she no longer has to pay rent.

The other members of the group are:
Aurora (Sale of shoes and bedspreads by catalog)
Javier (Sale of construction materials)
Patricia (Sale of bedspreads and comforters by catalog)
Sixto (Sale of seasonal articles, imitation jewelry and other trinkets)
Patricia (Sale of bedspreads and comforters by catalog)
Laura (Sale of Avon and Jafra)
Mariana (Sale of shoes by catalog)
David (Sale of CDs and buscuits)
Abigail (Sale of snacks and tamales)
Josefina (Sale of perfumes)
Silvina (Sale by catalog)

They are grateful for the support Kiva has given them to have a better future and accomplish their goals.

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.
