The member of the group named Alicia V. C. is 40 years old and completed her third year of secondary education and has her secondary school certificate. She has 2 daughters, Viridiana, who is 18 years old and in high school, and Cristina, who is 20 years old and in her second semester of computer programming. Both of them live in their parents' house. Alicia has a business selling Mexican snacks at her locale in downtown Tlayecac next to the water reservoir. Her house is three blocks from the locale and she walks there. She offers her customers sopes, quesadillas, tlacoyos and gorditas. She is going to use the loan to buy a new dining table and some chairs to have a better quality and more attractive business. She started her business 9 years ago when she inherited it from her mother. Previously she sold rice tacos, sandwiches, sopes and quesadillas in the school. Her favorite part about working in her business is that she can attend to the children at the school. She takes the products to the school and the children really like them. She personally sells to 30 to 50 customers who arrive to enjoy her food. Her business faces the competition from a locale that offers the same products behind her establishment. With her income she has been able to help her daughters in their studies and continue investing, and also to pay for the loan. Her dream is to build a house on a plot of land that she has in Los Potreros so that when she has grandchildren they will have space to play and she will be able to enjoy them.
In the town of Tlayecac there is a mountain called Cruz. It is very beautiful and ecological and always green. There is a cross high up on the mountain and the Day of the Cross is May 3rd. People from the town carry the cross to the church. Alicia gives the people tamales and another woman gives them atole. The cross stays at the church for a month and on the first Sunday of June the people go up the mountain to put the cross back in its place.
The members of the group are: Marcela Cataneda V. and with her loan she will buy worsted yarn to knit and sell napkins. Beda V. C. is going to buy feed for her animals. Ambrosia M. Z. is going to buy soap, eggs, milk and sugar to diversify her grocery store. Yolanda M. R. buys all kinds of candies to sell. Alicia V. C. is going to buy a new table and chairs to improve her business. Yadira C. M. is going to buy coloring, etc., for a better service for her clients. Maria Luisa C. R. is going to buy rice, milk, vegetables, tortillas, etc., to prepare food in her economic kitchen. Maleny S. G. is going to buy cornmeal, tortillas, chicken, beef., etc to make the food she sells.
Alicia wants to tell Kiva and the Realidad foundation that "we thank you, because with this this support the other members and I have gotten ahead."

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.
