Las Margaritas Group
In this Group: Angelica, Adela Victoria , Maria Elena, Candelaria, Teresa
Las Margaritas ("The Daisies") is a group made up of members who are working daily to improve their lives despite the difficulties they must face. They live in the Tlapala community on the banks of the centre of Chalco, in Mexico City. A group of five women, they decided that their group would be called Las Margaritas because they like flowers, especially daisies, because they are beautiful. They each feel comfortable with each other, as the mutual support they offer each other is important.
Candelaria B. G., 49, is proud to be from the state of Oaxaca. Her husband works as a mason and they have four grown children, three of whom are married and one who is single. She has sold merchandise for 20 years, as she is a person who looks after her family and helps her parents, who still live in Oaxaca. Candelaria used to sell food, but had to stop because of illness, so she decided to learn a new business that would not require much work. She started selling cleaning products like: fibers, Clarasol, pine, buckets, tubs, sodas, etc. The people who buy her products say that her service is very good and they continue to buy. She wants to have a fixed location to sell her products, so that she is not mistreated and can have a little more stock, and can fix up her house a little more.
The other members are: Angélica F. Hernández (grocery and dairy products sales), Adela Victoria C. (chicken sales), Teresa M. S. (fruit and vegetable sales) and Maria Elena L. (store). Since it is a small group their desire to improve is enormous and they want to invest in order to obtain more income.

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.
