In this Group: Victoria, Juana, Angelica, Angela Andrea, Maria Guadalupe, Elizabeth, Rosa Maria, Arianda, Valentina
The women called their group “Koral” because they consider themselves to be very special. They commented that even though coral is found underwater and moves according to the movement of the water, it’s not destroyed. This is like their friendship: transparent, firm and beautiful and this is how they want their group to be. It is located in Hidalgo and has 9 members.

Mrs. Victoria Hernández is the group President. She is 60 years old and a very enterprising, enthusiastic and hard working woman. She finished 6th graD.. She makes home-maD. tortillas, a business she started 14 years ago.

She is asking for a loan to expand the business to the extent she used to have it. Due to circumstances beyond her control she was unable to continue with her tortilL. shop which is why she’s now asking for funds to buy corn and a griddle. She dreams with having a tortilL. shop like back when she started her business.

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.
