Las Doncellas Group
In this Group: Maria Isabel , Maria De Jesus, Alai
The group is composed of three ladies each with a different activity. It’s called “Las Doncellas” (The Lasses) and is located in Julián Grajales, Copaínala municipality, Chiapas State, México. The reason for the name is that they are Lasses.

María Isabel G. Gutiérrez is the one who was interviewed. She is 25 years old and married to Mr. Isidro Solís Vega with whom she has a three year old daughter, Lizani Janet, who is their pride.

Isabel embroiders and knits clothes and asked for the loan to buy supplies like: thread, lace and buttons so that she can make them with more quality and sell for a good price in order to earn profits and better income for her home.

Her family encouraged her to go into this business because she’s liked sewing since she was a little girl. She started the activity three months ago because she had been taking courses to improve her embroidery to obtain more customers who would be interested in her knitwear and be able to sell it for a good price.

What she would like to do is save up to study to become a tailor and professional dressmaker in order to design more styles of clothing and earn better income as well as have more customers for the business she’s starting.

She joined the group thanks to an invitation from her neighbor, Alai R. Arias, to join the program and request a loan to work and have something to dedicate her time to.

The group members are:

María Isabel G. Gutiérrez who will use the loan to buy thread, lace and buttons for her knitwear,

María de Jesús García Zacarías who will use the loan to buy stock items for her gold jewelry business: chains, bracelets and earrings, among other, to sell in surrounding communities,

Alai R. Arias who will use the loan to buy assorted brands of powdered detergent and bar soap to sell in her community.

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.
