This group is called Nueva Vida ("New Life"), and it is made up of ten women, each of them with different goals and expectations, but all of them with the desire to get ahead and work hard each day. They are happy to be part of this group. They are currently headquartered in the community of Chalco, in the State of México.

This borrower is Edith R. R., age 53 (the one in the navy blue sweatshirt). She has a daughter who is 22 and currently working, since she could not continue her studies due to a lack of income in the household. They only have each other for support, since Edith does not receive support from her partner. Edith is a person who has always had to work to get ahead and to buy her medicines, since she suffers from asthmatic bronchitis, but this does not stop her from continuing to work hard. Her business is selling cleaning products such as brooms and fibers out of her home, and also selling secondhand clothing and shoes at the markets near her community. She lays out blankets to display the clothes. At times her business is affected by rain and she sells less. Her best sales days are the weekends. She tries to stock new merchandise every three days so she can offer variety to her customers. With the loan she is requesting, she will buy a little more clothing for her business, along with cleaning products. Her plans for the future are to construct a small extra room in her home and to see her daughter return to her studies so that she can have a better future.

The other members of this group are:
María Trinidad J. Benítez (Home products sales)

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.
