Amistad (Flat) Group
In this Group: Tomasa , Maria Doloes, Carolina, Rosa Del Carmen
The Amistad (Friendship) group is located in Tecpatan, Chiapas, Mexico. It is made up of four women who each have a different business. The group chose this name because they have been friends for many years.

Señora María Dolores Gomes López is 56 years old, a single mother of five children, three of them daughters, and two of them sons. Four of her children are already married and only the youngest still lives with her. Deiser is 21 years old and is a student in a pre-university course. He is the only one who contributes to household expenses.

María has been selling groceries for the last ten years and all has gone well since the beginning. Together with her family she has made progress in life, and she has enough income to pay for food on a daily basis. She receives assistance from her one son who works in the fields, and she doesn’t feel that she works alone.

María’s motivation for working is to use her time to obtain money to get ahead, along with her family. She comments that she has managed to succeed with her business because of her dedication and effort, and that’s how she has money for small expenses.


Some of the money she earns from her business on a daily basis, she puts aside to buy more merchandise each week so that her stock looks good and her customers are interested in buying from her. Her dream is to see her business grow day by day so she can save more and build a better place for it. Then her customers will be able to shop in comfort. She also wants to put cement on the walls of her house, something that is very important to her.

María Dolores became part of the group when one of her neighbours invited her to join the program and get a loan to invest in her business.

The group is made up of the following people:
Tomasa Sánchez P. will use the loan to buy ingredients such as chicken, seafood, and vegetables for her small food business.
María Dolores Pérez López will use the loan to buy merchandise such as sugar, rice, oil, and beans for her grocery store.

Carolina Gómez Pérez will use the loan to buy chickens for grilling and then sell the pieces cooked and seasoned.

Rosa del Carmen Gómez Pérez will use the loan to buy ingredients such as meat, chilies, onions, and vinegar to make chorizo sausages.

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.
