This photo was taken at the nursery of Mrs.Ana Isabel B. C., who is a member of the Las Alegres (Happy Women) group that meets in Tenancingo, Edo Mex. Also in the photo are shoots of the “Alcatraz” plants that she grows.

She grows and sells flowers since she is a flower-grower. She began this business six years ago with the help of her husband and now with that of her children, supporting the family with the earnings from this business.

She will use the loan to invest in packing materials for her next harvest, since she says that is the most important thing because in this way the flowers stay fresher and live longer. Her customers have the same opinion; they say they are looking for better packaging. She is well-known in flower sales for her attituD. about selling; she is an aggressive businesswoman because of the effort she puts into her sales.

She always shows the happiness that characterizes her. This is the true reason for naming the group Las Alegres.

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.
