El Fortin (Flat) Group
In this Group: Rossana Isabel, Deilery, Maria Aroly
Deilery is 32 years old, and lives with her common-law husband of 8 years, Símon. Her family consists of four children, José Francisco who is in the second grade of secondary school, Rubiel Alejandro who is in the fifth grade of elementary school, and Viridiana and Jonathon who are 8 years old. Delilery tells us: "I feel very happy on account of the home that I have and the four children that God has given me."
She, along with other people, found out that Fundación Realidad offered loans to people who have businesses, and so they decided to form a group that they called El Fortín. The reason that they gave themselves this name is that the road that goes to their community is called that. Her friends who make up the rest of the group are: Rossana Isabel and María Aroly, and each has a different business. Deilery runs a business that sells tamales, sandwiches, sodas, fries, and other things. She has been running the business for one year and sells her goods in the Justo Sierra elementary school.
She is requesting a loan from Fundación Realidad A.C. to buy stocks for her store, as is Rossana for her snack store, and María Aroly who sells cooking utensils. She comments that her business is going very well, and it has helped her to make a profit and to help her husband with the household expenses. Simón (her husband) works as a mason's assistant, he feels happy and satisfied with the support he gives his wife because he believes in gender equality.
"My dream is to build my own place and, with the profits from my business, to support my children in their studies so that they have more opportunities to study and will have a better future."

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.
