This group is called San Felipe after the neighborhood in Hueyepan, Tétela del Volcán, in which it’s located. It has 6 members: Paula, who sells chicken, Julia, Florivel and Marisol who sell seasonal fruit, Francisca who sells beverages, María Natividad who sells avocadoes and seasonal fruit; all the members are from the same community in Morelos.

Marisol, whom we will feature, is 30 years old. She has been married to Gustavo for 11 years and she has 4 little ones: Alexis, 11, who is a 5th-grader, Gustavo, 9, who is in elementary school, Imanol, 6, who is just starting elementary school, and the baby, Julián, who is one year old.

This is the second time that the San Felipe group has requested a loan from FRAC. They realized that in FRAC the interest rates were low so they decided to continue working with FRAC.

Marisol will use the funds to buy fertilizer so that she can fertilize her raspberry and chayote crops. Her dream is to be able to add a few rooms to her home because she needs more space for her children. Another goal is to be able to buy another lot so that she can plant more; she will do this once she finishes paying back the new loan FRAC will grant.

What she likes most about her community is the cool and productive year-round climate. There is seasonal fruit available (apple, raspberry, strawberry, pear, Mexican hawthorn, chilacayote [a type of pumpkin], avocado, perón [a type of tomato], etc.); everything common to cold climates. In addition, her community’s feast day which is August 4, Santo Domingo day.

All the group members are good friends and feel comfortable forming the San Felipe group. She wants to thank Fundación Realidad and Kiva for the help they have been providing.

Ésta es la segunda ocasión en la que el grupo San Felipe pide un préstamo a FRAC, ellas se dieron cuenta que en FRAc las tasa de interes son bajas y por eso decidieron seguir trabajando con FRAC.
Marisol utilizará este crédito para la compra de fertilizante y poder abonar sus plantas de frambuesa y chayote que es a los que dedica, el sueño que ella tiene es de poder levantar unos cuartos mas para su vivienda, ya que con sus pequeñines necesita darles sus espacio, otra meta que ella quiere alcanzar es poder adquirir otro lote para sembrar mas plantas esto lo hará una vez que termine de pagar a FRAC el nuevo préstamo q le darán.
Lo que mas le gusta de su comunidad es el clima fresco, y productivo todo el año hay fruta de temporada (Manzana, frambuesa, fresa, pera, tejocote, chilacayote, aguacate, perón, etc.) Todo lo que se produce en tierra fría. Y también la fiesta de su pueblo del día 4 de agosto le festeja a santo Domingo.

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.
