The members of this group decided to call themselves “Yukuyoo” because it is the Mixtec name for the community in which they live (Yukuyoo-San L.). Doña Flora M. C. is the group representative. She is married and has three children: Laydis is 17 years old and studying in El Cebeta, Alberto is 13 years old and in his second year of high school, and Anibal is 8 years old and in the fourth graD.. Doña Flora makes a living selling candy at a cooperative located near the school where one of her children attends. The loan she will receive will be used to buy more candy, pork rinds, soft drinks, and other snacks to sell.

She decided to pursue this business because it gave her the opportunity to work at the cooperative near her son’s high school. In addition, she likes finding ways to improve her quality of life and helping her husband with the household expenses and their children’s education.

Doña Flora is very pleased because the sales at her business have been doing well. While her students were on vacation, she continued to sell from home and obtained very good results. Now that classes have started again and children will be returning to school, she expects to generate a very good income.

Doña Flora says she has never failed to make a payment on her loan and neither have her fellow group members. She says they are responsible people and all of them are prompt. All of these women work very hard because they want to succeed and improve their way of life. Since everyone in her group is from the same community, Flora says they are all trustworthy because they have spent a great deal of time getting to know another.

She wants to thank Kiva and its lenders for the support and confidence they have demonstrated to her and the other members of her group. They appreciate the opportunity to continue investing in their businesses so that they can improve the lives of their families.

Now that she has secured financial support for her business, Doña Flora says her goals are to build a room for her business where she can sell candy and to improve her income. She also wants to support her children with their studies so that they can become successful career professionals.

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.
