This group is called “Cuahutemoc” because it is the name of the neighborhood where all of the members reside. The focus of this description will be the story of Sra. Yolanda N. H., the group representative. She is 30 years old and married to her husband Pedro. They still do not have children. Yolanda sells tamales, meat enchiladas, and chorizo sausage.

Yolanda decided to pursue this business of the great demand that exists. She only sells from home and is able to generate good earnings since she has many customers. Yolanda has already been in business for five years and will invest her loan in the purchase of more ingredients used in making her products. Tomatoes, chili peppers, garlic, banaN. leaves, condiments, and meat are the items that she needs the most.

With the profits from her business, Yolanda is saving toward the construction of a security wall around her house. She also supports her husband with maintaining their household since they have many expenses between the two of them.

She says that her business is a benefit to the neighbors in her area since there are few people who sell locally. All of the vendors sell at the market, so she takes advantage of the few residents who do not like to travel to the center of town. In addition to being close to her neighbors, she is known for the attention and service that she provides. Doña Yolanda dreams of adding a space to her house where she can open a butcher shop. She also wants to have children.

Yolanda says the members of her group are very responsible people who complete their payments on time. They know one another and get along very well. She is extremely grateful to Fundación Realidad and Kiva for their support by providing this loan. Her business is improving as a result of this assistance.

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.
