Sra. Maicela H. S., 43, lives in Reforma in the Mexican state of Chiapas. She is married to Sr. Santos A. H. with whom she has six children, one married and five living at home: Luis Antonio, 18; Maricela A. who is in her second year of college; Deiser, 14 who is in the third year of high school; Briseida Alejandra, 10; and little Santa Marideli, 1 1/2.

Maricela has made a living raising and selling pigs for a year. She says that the business is going well. She used to operate a grocery business, too, but she decided to concentrate on raising pigs because the returns are better.

Maricela's inspiration for starting the business was her family. She wanted to provide them with whatever they needed to get ahead in the world. She also wanted to help her husband with the family's day-to-day expenses.

Maricela wants to user the earnings to buy more pigs, then raise and sell them. She also wants to save for her children's future and help them fulfill their dreams.

The group is called "Reforma" because it is the name of the community where the members of the group live. Maricela joined the group after seeing advertisements posted for the group around the town. The idea intrigued her and she is now a member.

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.
