In this Group: Magdai, Yolanda , Rosa Lidia, Ilse, Yareni
Señora Magdai Sánchez M. is fifty-four years old and lives in Ángel Alvino Corzo in the municipality of Copainala, which is in the state of Chiapas, México. She had five children, each of whom now lives in their own home. She has custody of two of her grandchildren, Roxana Yassiri, who is eight years old, and Axel T., who is six years old.

She is dedicated to her home and to her grocer's shop (Kendra), which she has had for three years, showing that the business has been successful since it opened. In her small grocery she sells beans, sugar and oil, among other products. Her grocery is what has helped her to cover her household expenses.

Since she didn't have anyone else to support her, Magdai's children motivated her to open the business by giving her the start-up money. They wanted her to be able to support herself and to get ahead. With this work, she has been able to do just that.

With the profits that she earns from her grocer's shop, she purchases additional merchandise to re-stock the store. Her store always has a professional presentation, and her customers feel well cared for by her. Her store is very popular and preferred because she has a good spot in the community.

She says that her dream is for her business to continue to grow day by day so that she can save some money to start construction on a room for her granddaughter. She also wants to support her grandchildren in their education and, for as long as god grants her life, to keep giving them all her support.

Magdai became a member of the group through an invitation from her daughter, Señora Rosa Lidia, who is the group representative. The group is named "Girasol" (Sunflower) because on the patio of their house there are lots of sunflower plants.

The people who make up the Girsol group are the following:
Magdai Sánchez M.: she makes her living with a grocery business and requested the loan to purchase additional merchandise.
Yolanda E. Juárez: she makes her living selling tamales (a local dish) and requested the loan to purchase ingredients such as meat, dough, chili peppers and raisins, among other items.
Rosa Lidia Hernández Sánchez: she purchases chickens from ranches to re-sell in the same area.
Ilse E. Juárez: she makes her living selling tamales (a local dish) and requested the loan to purchase ingredients such as guineo leaves (from a local plant), meat, dough, ancho chilies and raisins, among other items.
Yareny T. S.: she will use the loan to purchase Avon and Jafra beauty catalogs.

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.
