This group is located in Puebla, Mexico and is made up of ten achieving women, each having her own successful business. This is their fourth cycle working with CreditComun and they have always been punctual with their payments. They will use the money from this loan to buy supplies (fabric for making stuffed animals, different sizes of artificial eyes, thread, and stuffing).
The group’s treasurer is named María de Lourdes Nieves A.L. and she is the group’s most honest and responsible person. This is why she was elected to this position among the other officers. She is 45 years old, has a junior high school education, is single, and makes and sells stuffed animals. She is a very enterprising woman and designs her own items. Her peers see her as a person to be emulated, despite her limited formal education. With a lot of effort she’s been able to establish a large number of customers.
For her, success would mean opening her own stuffed animal factory and creating her own brand. She also dreams of becoming known throughout the world and exporting her products. Her goal in life is to create jobs for other women, who, like her, dream of providing good educations for their families, so that they don’t suffer from the same needs that they have had to deal with. These loans have made it possible for each of them establish their small businesses.

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.
