Las Cariñositas is a group made up of thirteen members who all share a great friendship. One strange thing about this group is that there is only one male member who they call “El Cariñosito” (the caring one). They live in Valle de Chalco, Mexico State.


María D. is 29 years old, is a group member and she has two school age children. Six months ago, she decided to start a business that would not involve leaving her children and that would be profitable. She decided to start selling undergarments, blouses and other clothing items. She has been very pleased with herself for having started something that has been beneficial and more than anything, something she likes. She is easy to talk to and approachable. She shows her merchandise to her neighbors every three days. Then, they recommend other people, so she can increase her sales. María is going to purchase more merchandise with half of the loan.With the other half, she will purchase a three wheeled vehicle, since it’s heavy to carry the bags of clothing. More than that, she wants one, so when it rains, it’s easier to cover her merchandise. Her plans are to buy a stand, so she can stay in one place and more than anything, to give her children a better future.

Las Cariñositas es grupo conformado por trece integrantes que llevan una buena amistad entre todos y algo curioso de este grupo es que hay únicamente un integrante varón al cual le pusieron “El Cariñosito”. Ellos radican en la comunidad de Valle de Chalco, Estado de México.

María D. tiene 29 años, es integrante del grupo, y tiene dos hijos en edad escolar. Hace seis meses decidió comenzar con una actividad que no implicara descuidar a sus hijos y que fuera rentable, así que decidió comenzar con la venta de ropa interior, blusas, mallones, etc. Hasta el día de hoy se encuentra muy satisfecha con ella misma de haber comenzado algo que le trajera un buen beneficio y sobre todo algo que le gusta, ya que tiene mucha facilidad de palabra y trato hacia la gente, sale a ofrecer su mercancía cada tercer día con los vecinos y ellos la recomiendan con más gente así es como puede incrementar sus ventas. María va a invertir la mitad del crédito para la compra de mas mercancía y la otra mitad para poder adquirir un triciclo ya que para ella es algo pesado ir cargando las bolsas de ropa y sobre todo cuando llueve tendrá mas facilidad de cubrir su mercancía. Sus planes son poder comprar un puesto y así poder estar fija en algún lugar y sobre todo poder darles un buen futuros a sus hijos.

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.
