This is the Lucerito group, made up of 10 women looking to better themselves and succeed. In this group every member makes her own decisions since they are all comfortable being a part of Lucerito. The are from the San Miguel Xico 3ra Seccion neighborhood of Valle de Chalco, State of Mexico. This group is in their third cycle and hope to remain in Fundacion Realidad since the support has been helpful to them.

Group member Angela D. O. is 74, widowed 6 yeas ago, and has four married children. She started working from a very young age as her parents were unable to give her the chance to study since she had to care for her other siblings. She started out with a small store where her husband helped out, though she had to close the store when she was widowed since she didn't have help stocking the store. Some time later she began selling dried chilies, plantain leaves, cinnamon, nuts and others since this is a relatively low intensity activity. Angela opens at 10 in the morning and closes at 4 pm so that she can deliver her orders to her neighbors in the area. Angela would like to re-open her store and hire someone to help with sales.

With this loan she hopes to buy plantain and corn leaves for tamales, since this is the time of year they sell best, and also be able to buy top quality product to improve her customer base.

The other group members are as follows:
Julia M. H. (fruit and vegetable sales)
Asuncion Graciela R. R. (macrobiotic sales)
Ernestina Ramírez Méndez (clothing sales)
Jessica Vázquez Hernández (clothing sales)
María Antonia R. Ramírez (traditional mexican snacks)

Desde muy chica comenzó a trabajar ya que sus padres no le dieron la oportunidad de estudiar porque tenia que cuidar a sus demás hermanos. Ella comenzó con una pequeña tienda en la que su esposo le ayudaba, cuando ella quedo viuda tuvo que cerrar la tienda por que no contaba con la ayuda de nadie para seguir surtiendo su mercancía, tiempo después decidió comenzar con la venta de Chiles secos, Hojas de plátano, canela, nueces, etc. Ya que considera que es una actividad en la no tiene que hacer mucho esfuerzo. Ángela abre desde las diez de la mañana y cierra a las cuatro de la tarde, para después poder entregar sus pedidos con las vecinas de su localidad.

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.
