Itacuan Group
In this Group: Lidia Roberta, Emma, Francisca, Elizabeth Soledad, Carmen, Justina, Eufemia Ines, Lidia Roberta, Araceli, Luisa, Maria Del Carmen
The Itacuan group chose this name because the itacuan flower is grown in their region. Lidia Roberta C. M. is the representative of the group. She is married and has two children, 3-year old Frida and 1-year old Beltrán. She has a grocery store. Lidia chose this line of work because the town is very small and so there are no other businesses of this kind in the community. As well, it provides a good income.
With the loan she plans to buy more merchandise for her store such as soft drinks, soups, soap, oil, beans, rice, sugar, and salt as these are the items most in demand.

Lidia says that her business has greatly benefitted the people in the community as beforehand they had to go to the nearby town to buy the things they needed. Now they don’t have to go as far so they save time and money.

Her goal is to expand her business so she can continue supporting her children while they get their education. They will then be able to get good jobs and have a bright future.

Lidia says that the people in her group are hardworking, responsible, and punctual when the time comes to make their repayments. She has known them for a long time and knows they will not try to cheat anyone who offers them help. She is grateful to the donors and to Kiva for the trust they are putting in her and the other group members. With this help they can improve their businesses as well as help their families who are very needy.

Este grupo se llama Itacuan, por que en la localidad donde viven se cosecha la flor de itacuan, esta historia es acerca de Lidia Roberta C. M. ya que es una de las integrantes de este grupo, ella es casada y tiene 2 hijos Frida de 3 años y Beltrán de 1 año de edad, Lidia tiene una tienda de abarrotes.

Nos comenta que escogió poner esta tienda, por que su localidad es muy pequeña y debido a que no hay mas negocios de este tipo en la comunidad, aparte de que es una muy buena fuente de ingresos, ya que deja buenas ganancias puesto que es la única tienda de abarrotes ahí, con el préstamo que recibió piensa invertir en la compra de mas mercancía para surtir bien su negocio como: refrescos, sopas, jabón, aceite, fríjol, arroz, azúcar y sal, ya que es lo que mas vende.

Ella dice que con su negocio esta beneficiando mucho a las personas de su comunidad, ya que antes de que ella abriera su tienda de abarrotes las personas tenían que ir al pueblo vecino por los productos que nesecitaban, pero ahora ya no tienen que salir tan lejos y se ahorran tiempo y dinero.

La meta que tiene doña Lidia es la de hacer crecer mas su tienda para así poder seguir apoyando a sus hijos con sus estudios y puedan tener una buena profesión y un muy buen futuro.

Lidia dice que todos sus compañeros del grupo son personas muy trabajadoras, responsables y puntuales a la hora de realizar sus pagos, ya que los conoce de hace tiempo y no les gusta defraudar a quienes les brindan su ayuda.

Le da las gracias a los prestatarios y a kiva por la confianza que le están dando a ella y a su grupo, ya que con su apoyo están pudiendo sacar adelante sus negocios y mas que nada a sus familias que son las que más necesitan esta ayuda.

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.
