Emmanuel, which means "God with us," is made up of eleven members. They live in the Cerro del Márquez community on the edges of the Chalco Valley, in the State of México. They have an immense desire to get ahead, and for this reason they are ready to work hard every day, and they are grateful for the support provided to them on Kiva's part and through the Realidad Foundation.

Oliva O. G. is 57 years old and comes from the state of Oaxaca. Unfortunately, she did not have the opportunity to finish her studies; instead, she went to Mexico City to work. Nineteen years ago, she began selling garlic, dried chilies, cinnamon, seeds, etc. During the night, she works wrapping her cinnamon and bagging her garlic so that she can begin very early the next day with her sales at the markets set up for her community. Starting at eight in the morning, she walks through the markets to sell her products, since she does not have a fixed place for her business. She tries to restock her products every eight days, so that she will always have merchandise and so that she can fill the orders placed with her during the week. Oliva plans to begin a new activity which will give her another source of income, so that she does not have to do without the necessities. With the requested loan, she will buy merchandise such as cinnamon, brown paper, bags, string, rubber bands, etc. With this, she will be able to sell a bit more.

Emmanuel, que significa Dios con Nosotros, está conformado por once integrantes, ellos viven en la Comunidad Cerro del Márquez a las orillas de Valle de Chalco, Estado de México. Sus deseos de superarse son inmensos y es por eso que están dispuestos a esforzarse día a día y agradecen el apoyo brindado por parte de Kiva a través de Fundación Realidad.

Oliva O. G. tiene 57 años de edad, es originaria del estado de Oaxaca, desafortunadamente no tuvo la oportunidad de terminar sus estudios así que se vino a trabajar a la ciudad de México. Hace diecinueve años comenzó con la venta de ajos, chiles secos, canela, semillas, etc. Durante la noche se dedica a envolver su canela y embolsar sus ajos para que al otro día muy temprano pueda comenzar con sus ventas en los tianguis que se hacen por su comunidad, desde las ocho de la mañana comienza a caminar en el tianguis para vender ya que no tiene un lugar fijo para establecerse, ella trata de surtir cada ocho días para así tener siempre mercancía y para entregar los pedidos que le hacen durante la semana.

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.
