Santa Maria Jaloxtoc Group
In this Group: Monica, Maria De Lourdes , Sabina, Rufina, Cristina
This united group is called Santa Maria Jaloxtoc because it is the name of the church of the village. It is located in the village of Jaloxtoc, in the state of Morelos, Mexico. The group is made up of 5 members who know each other because they are neighbors. This is their first loan with Fundacion Realidad.

The member Monica B. J. is 30, and went to school through the sixth grade. She has 2 sons, Juan Antonio, 12, and Cristhian Jesus, 8. Monica sells perfumes and cosmetics through a catalog of the “Jafra” brand. She needs the loan to buy perfumes, lipsticks, eye shadows and cosmetics from Jafra. She started her business 4 years ago when she was given a flyer to come to a talk and she thought this business was a good idea because she would have time to take care of her children, especially the youngest. He is handicapped. He can’t speak and he is slow physically so they go for therapy in the city of Cuatla. Her business is important because it is what supports the family and she puts a lot of energy into it so that sales don’t fall off. She will use the earnings to pay off the loan and for her son’s therapy and for her since she has to pay for each session and for the transportation to Cuatla from her home. “ To have a handicapped child is to live life differently from other people,” says Monica.

Her business has competition from others who sell the same products. Her dream is to set up her own stand so that she doesn’t have to sell from house to house. In the village of Jaloxtoc the countryside is beautiful. There are 2 jagueys (trees). The village feast is the 8th of December honoring Santa Maria and there is a Mass on that day, mariachis, and food for all the people who attend.

The other people of the group are:
Maria de Lourdes M. B. who is going to buy perfumes for woman and cologne for men, lipsticks and eye shadows to supply her business.
Sabina H. M. who will buy sugar, straws, bags, flavorings and fruit, etc to make ice cream popsicles.
Rufina R. Canutova who will buy shoes to start a business.
Christina C. B. who will buy vegetables and fruit to increase her business.

Monica says “thanks for trusting in me, for offering me help and I promise not to be dishonest, and to continue getting ahead.

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.
