The "Unión de Ave Fénix" group is formed by thirteen hard-working ladies who decided on the name as union makes strength. They live in San Miguel Xico, Valle de Chalco Solidaridad, Estado de Mexico. The members of the group are: Ma. Gabriela Ramírez (barbecued meat sale), Fidelia C. (sale from catalog), Angélica R. (ceramics sale), Andrea Dávila (costume jewellery sale), Josefina E. (Mexican snacks sale), Esperanza Valentín (nutrition products sale), Carmen Martínez (dressmaking), Marisol García (jewellery sale), Beatriz Hernández (chicken sale), Graciela R. (groceries), Ana Karen Dávalos (custome jewellery), María Teresa C. (tacos), and Epifanía Olmeda (Clothing store).


Marisol is 40 years old, she has a daughter in middle school. Marisol became a widow ten years ago and since then she has worked double in order to maintain her family as her mother also depends on her. Marisol has sold jewellery for twelve years and is continuing with this activity as it is very profitable. Every day when she has finished her chores she goes out to offer her merchandise at different places such as homes and stores. As time is worth gold to her she takes advantage of every opportunity given to her. Marisol stocks up once a week in order to have a variety of earrings, bracelets, and chains to keep her customers satisfied. She sells the most on holidays and during the month of December and obviously most of her customers are ladies. Marisol plans to set up a gift shop to obtain more profit for her family and be able to meet their needs. The loan will be spent on stocking up.


They are very pleased with the support offered by Kiva through Fundación Realidad that enables them to reach their goals.

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.
